Fire Ready Steps

Fire Ready is the official clearance process of Southeastern University. Students must complete all steps in this process prior to arriving on campus each semester.  The below steps apply to students who are campus-based in Lakeland.

Fire Ready for Registration

This step requires you to have set up your student account access. Instructions were emailed to you after you submitted your enrollment deposit. If you need help logging in to these systems, visit this page for details. Contact the Office of the Registrar at registrar@seu.edu with any questions.

  • To register for classes, log in to the JICS system. Through the JICS system, you’ll be able to see which classes are available, search for textbooks, view your course schedule and more. You will initially log in with your student ID number and the last 4 digits of your social security number. Once you’re in, you are encouraged to change your password by following the prompts.

    Your degree audit, located within JICS, will list the classes you have already taken and those that you still need to complete in order to qualify for graduation. The listing of required classes corresponds to your declared major.*  Here’s how to view your degree audit.

    2. Click the Student tab and then Degree Info
    3. Within the Degree Audit Portlet, click View All Details.
    4. Click Recalculate Student Progress and then Grad Report

    *If your major is undeclared, only your foundational core classes will display until you declare a major.
