Paying for College

It’s our goal to make college as affordable as possible for students, which is why so many students receive some type of financial aid – including scholarships, grants and loans. These help offset tuition costs.

Completing the FAFSA

All students are required to submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year in order to be eligible for student financial aid. As you complete the application, indicate that you want your financial aid analysis information sent to Southeastern University (the SEU FAFSA code is 001521). Upon receipt of your FAFSA information from the federal processor, SEU will email you login instructions for accessing the Web portal where you can track your financial aid status and missing items.  The information you provide on the FAFSA will be processed to determine your eligibility for all financial awards, grants, and loans. It is important to have completed your family’s most recent income tax return(s) before you submit the FAFSA.

Southeastern University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin, or handicap, with regards to admission and employment policies, the educational, financial aid, or other programs and privileges to students at the university.
