Choosing the right college isn’tjust about getting an education. It’s about finding a place thatgets you ready for a career and a lifetime of service to others.

Southeastern University gives you the foundation needed to succeed in life, not just at work. SEU has more than 100 degree programs to choose from as well as a real community where you’ll build relationships that will last a lifetime.

Our campus is growing!
We recently opened our 125,000-sq. ft. Buena Vida live/learn facility, which includes new residence halls, visual and performing arts spaces, a Bloomberg financial lab, and a food court. Our brand-new welcome center will open in 2020.

Health care opportunities
With the rapid changes taking place in today’s health care landscape, the need for ethical, knowledgeable, and experienced medical professionals is stronger than ever. Here are just a few ways we prepare our students to work in this field.

Anatomage Table
SEU students have access to a brand-new Anatomage Table that provides the most technologically advanced 3D visualization of anatomical systems available. This state-of-the-art software and “operating table” features robust clinical content and allows for in-depth experiential learning.

New facilities
Our new College of Natural and Health Sciences building includes a state-of-the-art nursing simulation lab, patient exam rooms, and laboratory classrooms for chemistry, biology, and general science.

Bachelor of Science in Nursing
SEU’s bachelor’s programs in Nursing prepare students to be caring Christian professionals in a variety of health care settings. We offer an online RN-to-BSN program for nurses currently working in the field and a BSN for students entering the field.

Early acceptance to medical school
SEU has formed an exciting relationship with Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM). This allows high-achieving students to apply and receive early acceptance to medical, pharmacy, or dental school in the spring of their freshman or sophomore year at SEU.

MBA in Healthcare Administration
Hone your understanding of traditional business principles in the health care context—specifically in organizations and governance, economics and finance, information technology, quality management, law, and more.

Spiritual life
Your spiritual development is the very core of our mission. Through chapel services, mission trips, community outreach, faith integration in the classroom, and much more, your faith will be strengthened daily.

SEU Worship
Our student-led music ministry—SEU Worship—writes, performs, and professionally produces original worship songs every year. As of December 2019, SEU Worship had reached more than 26 million streams on Spotify.

Value
College is a significant investment, and we provide numerous financial aid options to make SEU accessible to all students. Our average SEU award is $17,000, and more than 98% of our students receive financial aid. In fact, we awarded more than $29.4 million in scholarships in the 2018–2019 academic year alone.

Central Florida location
Our campus is in sunny Lakeland, Florida, where students enjoy great weather and outdoor activities all year. Lakeland is centrally located near theme parks, beaches, and more.
