What is Academic Advising?
You just got accepted into Southeastern University, and you’re eager to pursue a career as a (write your calling here)! Or, you don’t have a clue of what career God is calling you to. Either way, it’s the job of the Office of Academic Advising to help you graduate from Southeastern and embark on a God-honoring career. We will assign you to a faculty member who will advise you of what courses to take, mentor you professionally, and demonstrate how you can serve the Lord in your career.
How am I assigned an advisor?
A Major/Minor Form—on which to declare your major—should have come with your admittance letter to Southeastern University. If not, or if you misplaced it, print out a Major/Minor Form and complete it. Then, you may mail it to us at Office of the Registrar, Southeastern University, 1000 Longfellow Blvd. Lakeland, FL 33801, fax it to the Office of the Registrar at (863)667-5200, or bring it to the Office of the Registrar at Southeastern in person. Once we receive that form, we’ll assign you to a faculty member who’s familiar with your major. Your advisor will recommend what classes you should take to successfully complete your major. If you’re not sure what you want to major in, you have until you’ve earned 48 credit hours; in the interim, we’ll assign you a general education advisor.
How do I contact my advisor?
Your advisor’s name will appear on your account in the Student Information System in two to four weeks after we’ve received your completed Major/Minor Form. After you know your advisor’s name, you can e-mail him or her using this directory page. You will meet with your advisor during orientation if you are a new student at Southeastern.
