Office of Academic Success
The Office of Academic Success is committed to helping all students succeed at Southeastern. We work with students to identify their God-given strengths to help them flourish, whether they have a physical or learning disability or need to sharpen their performance in a class.
Students with Disabilities
We work with students and professors to equip students who have disabilities with accommodations they may need to take notes, study and fulfill coursework. But more importantly, we aid students in discovering their unique gifts that can help them excel in the studies to which they have been called. A student who uses a wheelchair and has ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) may get frustrated with having to navigate a classroom with her wheelchair and staying attentive during long lectures. But she also may be gifted with exceptional drive, determination and resourcefulness—strengths she can use to thrive in her classes. We coach students to acknowledge and use their talents so they may reap academic and, eventually, professional success.

The Office of Academic Success offers assessment tests for learning disabilities, vocational aptitudes, and personality inventories. In addition to these tests, the office administers standardized tests including the following: Florida College Entry-Level Placement Tests, required of students who have not taken the ACT or SAT, and College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests, which—like Advanced Placement (AP) tests—enable students to test out of General Education curriculum courses. Athletes and other students who must take make-up tests also may take their exams through the Office of Academic Success. The office also administers exit exams on behalf of Southeastern's academic departments and colleges of Education, Business & Legal Studies, and Christian Ministries & Religion.
