Yes, Southeastern University has been affiliated with the Assemblies of God since our founding. However, we welcome students from many different denominational backgrounds, including Baptist, Presbyterian, Methodist, Catholic, non-denominational, and many others. In fact, the majority of our students are from backgrounds other than the Assemblies of God. The community at SEU shares a strong commitment to Christ and making Him known, and we celebrate our theological similarities while also appreciating our differences and learning from each other.

Columbus has plenty of great churches for students from any Christian background.  There are large churches, multi-site churches, and also lots of small community churches where students can get plugged in and serve.  We encourage students to attend a local church.

We love this question because there are so many great answers.  Columbus has lots to offer from parks and recreation, to shopping, to community events, and more.  Click here to learn more.

The SEU Ohio Network Campus uses test scores (such as SAT and ACT) and other evaluations in considering whether our programs are a fit for the student.  We encourage all students to apply.  Please visit our application page for the minimum acceptance requirements.

We recommend that students complete their application at least one month prior to the start of classes.  Classes begin in August, mid-October, January, and early March.  For students beginning in fall semester, it is best to complete your application and apply for FASFA (federal student financial aid) by the end of May so that you can complete orientation during the summer.  (It is still possible to apply in summer, and begin classes in the fall.)

There is no application fee at this time.

Southeastern University generally responds within two to three weeks.  If they have not responded to your application submission, check to see if you are missing documents or contact us at 614.426.8979 to check your status.

Information to follow…

We pride ourselves in being an exceptional college choice for home-schooled students, and part of our commitment to serving home-schooled families comes through the admission process.  Since many home-schoolers do not study under the umbrella of a local school district or a home-schooling agency, Southeastern University permits you to create a transcript of your high school course work.  Transcripts should include all courses taken in Grades 9 through 12, as well as final grades and final cumulative GPA.

Cost is an important consideration when choosing a college, and SEU is proud to be one of the most affordable universities within the national Council of Christian Colleges and Universities.  More than 98% of our students receive financial aid, and our tuition ranks among the least expensive of more than 100 CCCU schools.  For a breakdown of our tuition and fees, click here.  We also encourage you to review information related to the “Price vs. Cost” of attending a Christian school as opposed to a state university or community college.  We firmly believe that the costs of not attending a Christian university outweigh the price associated with attendance.

You can read Southeastern University’s Admissions Policy Manual by clicking here.

It depends. If you have acquired less than 60 college credits, you need to submit a final high school transcript in order to be eligible for federal financial aid.

If you have taken college level English and Math classes, then you do not need to submit scores. If you have not taken (or passed) these classes, you need to submit scores to avoid being placed in a developmental math and English course.

Yes. Transcripts for both college and high school need to be requested from the institution and sent directly to Southeastern University at 1000 Longfellow Blvd, Lakeland FL 33801. All transcripts must be sealed.

You have multiple options to turn these pieces in.

First, you can complete both online at seu.edu/myessay and seu.edu/ccrf!

Second, you can scan and email them to admission@seu.edu

Third, you can mail them to Southeastern University Admissions, 1000 Longfellow Blvd, Lakeland, FL 33801.

Once you are accepted, Academic Advising will complete an audit of your transcripts and you will be able to view it on myFire. You can also request a preliminary degree audit through email.

You can audit courses as a non-degree seeking student. However, you would not earn credit for the courses that you audit and the classes would not count toward any degree program. The cost to audit courses is 50% of the tuition for the courses you choose (for students under the age of 55) and $20 per credit for individuals 55 and older. The application and registration process for someone to audit a course is different than how a degree-seeking student registers for a for-credit course. Therefore, if you decide you want to audit a course, contact us so that we can help you facilitate the process.

Transfer

No, they will not transfer.  However, OSOM is unique as a school of ministry in that it provides its students with the benefit of up to a semester of college credit (6 credits for the SEU Ohio Network Campus) through its partnership with Southeastern University. This is available only to students who have completed an entire level or multiple levels of the program with transfer credit of up to 6 credits (2 courses) per level, a potential value of $5,760.
