Applying for Financial Aid

Submit your application for admission to Southeastern University.
Determine your eligibility for scholarships (traditional undergraduates students only).
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.ed.gov.
Review your SEU financial award letter.

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 state funding. 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, work-study programs 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.

Affordable Payment Options

Southeastern’s affordable monthly payment plans are available to all students and families, regardless of need or financial standing. Why make a large payment each semester or borrow federal funds at high interest rates when you can spread your educational expenses over a 10- or 12-month period? There is no approval process, and the only cost required is a $65 annual enrollment fee.
