Earn your degree. Learn your trade. Get paid.

Earn while you learn

Complete an apprenticeship in your field and earn a paycheck as you earn your associate or bachelor's degree.

Get mentored

The connections you make as an SEU Trades student will give you a network within your trade to serve as mentors, future employers, and colleagues.


With a combination of online and on-the-job learning, your training provides maximum flexibility.

Career readiness

Be prepared to step into a new career upon program completion.

All abilities welcome

These programs will set you on your desired career path even if you have no prior experience.


Classes will be affordable, and financial aid options will be available.

 Note: While SEU trades will prepare students for trade licensing and industry certifications, students will not be required to complete these as part of the program.

Learning Model

The innovative learning model of SEU Trades combines the best of both trades education and college coursework.

While much of the learning will take place on the job — which will set you up for success in securing a job post-graduation — online classes that are more “traditional” in format are also part of the program. However, these courses focus specifically on your chosen field and apply directly to your trade.
