Supporting You Every Step of the Way

From campus to career, our job is to help you to be as successful as possible. That’s why we provide you with a wide variety of support services, making it easy to find the help you want — and the resources that you need.

These services are available to all SEU students.

Academic Center for Enrichment (ACE)

The Academic Center for Enrichment (ACE) is the learning and tutoring center here at Southeastern University. By providing a welcoming, supportive, and collaborative learning environment, we foster success for the entire SEU community.

Equal Access for All

Our Office of Academic & Auxiliary Services coordinates accommodations for students with documented disabilities.

Calendars

Stay informed on important academic dates and campus events with our university calendar.

Work on Campus

You won’t have to go far for a part-time job. Student workers find jobs in departments across campus, teaching assistants help faculty members, and students who qualify for Federal Work Study will find plenty of opportunities.

Virtual Counseling

Self-care is important; but who says you have to figure out how to do it all alone? With TimelyMD's TimelyCare, you’ll have 24/7 access to mental health counseling, designed to assist with your individual needs.

Health Services

SEU Health Services is excited to have a partnership with our local hospital system, Lakeland Regional Health (LRH), to offer students access to medical care.

Collaborative Advising

Your academic advising team collaborates with you throughout your time at SEU to make sure you’re taking the correct courses to stay on track for graduation. Learn more here.

Catalog

The university catalog is your guide to the courses that are required for your degree. While individual situations may vary, in general, you will fulfill the requirements for your degree based on the catalog year of when you declared your major/chose your degree.

Institutional Review Board

Southeastern University’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) oversees all formal research studies associated with the SEU community.

Early Alert

Everyone needs help at some point. Our Early Alert system and team will wrap support around you if things come up that affect your grades, or your ability to feel connected to campus life. You may even be matched with a success coach — your personal cheerleader who is dedicated to helping you unlock your potential.

Steelman Library

The Steelman Library is full of multimedia materials and knowledgeable faculty who are here to help you find the resources you need for projects, studying, and thesis research.

Academic Advising

Do you need guidance on which courses to register for to stay on track for graduation, and/or help with class registration? Learn all about academic advising here.

You are assigned two academic advisors based on your major. All students are assigned to a dedicated faculty advisor and staff advisor in support of your academic journey. (If you change your major, your advisors will also change.)

Your faculty advisor is your initial point of contact for course selection, career advice, and academic mentorship.

Your staff advisor (within the Office of Advising, listed below) is your secondary support in areas of general advice, major selection, degree audit questions, and graduation readiness.

Watch this video for step-by-step instructions on how to find the name and email of your assigned advisor, or contact advising@seu.edu.

Advising FAQs — On-Campus Undergraduate Students

How does advising help me?

Academic advising is a partnership between the academic advisor and student. Your advisor supports you along your academic journey by assisting you with course selection, helping you set academic goals, and guiding you to make responsible decisions consistent with the requirements of your degree.

Why should I meet with my academic advisors?

Meeting with your academic advisors will help prepare you for course selection and registration consistent with your major, and support you with graduation planning, so it’s highly recommended to contact your advisor as you begin to choose your classes.

How do I prepare for my advising meeting?

Before your meeting, be sure to take these important steps:

  • Review your degree audit in JICS. Your degree audit shows the classes you have left to complete and helps you monitor progress toward degree completion.

Traditional students can register for up to two online classes per semester in the fall and spring semesters, and up to 17 credit hours online in the summer. You can find these by reviewing the course schedule in JICS. Then, complete the online course permission form under Registrar > Academics in MySEU.

What does it mean if I have an advising hold?
If you have an advising hold, this means you need to schedule an advising session with your faculty advisor before you can register for classes.

To find the name and email of your assigned academic advisor, watch this step-by-step video or email advising@seu.edu. Keep in mind that if you change your major, your advisor will also change.
