We’re excited that you and your student are considering Southeastern University as their college home for the next few years!
The transition to college life can be a time of questions and uncertainty for students and their parents, but it doesn’t have to be. This page will help you feel connected to your son or daughter’s new “home away from home” at SEU, and help you both begin to navigate this next exciting chapter!

Traditional undergraduate students are students who are based on our main campus in Lakeland, Florida.
The faculty and staff of SEU are dedicated to ensuring that every student feels fully welcomed into our community as soon as they arrive. By focusing on student success, we work to ensure each student is given every opportunity to succeed, and above all, grows in faith as they discover God’s call on their lives.
When your son or daughter brings their God-given gifts, talents, and passions to SEU, we’ll help them use those gifts in ways they never knew were possible. Here’s how.
Our students develop a well-rounded faith that they feel confident in sharing or applying in multiple ways and with many types of people.
SEU offers multiple chapel services per week, all with the goal of filling our students’ hearts and strengthening their faith. Students are also involved in the coordination and production of chapel services, giving them firsthand experience in this aspect of ministry.
Our greatest joy is to see our students use their gifts to glorify God. That’s why we’ll help guide and support them in finding their God-given purpose — their Divine Design. From spiritually-guided career services, to SEU Groups, to everyday classroom interactions, we’re here to help point them down the path that’s been designed for them by Someone with a higher plan.
College is a time when a lot of life decisions are made: their field of study, their career, and maybe even where they’ll live after graduation. SEU will give them a foundation to rely on the Lord to guide them through all of these decisions, and set the stage for them to rely on Him for the rest of their life.
We provide our students with strategies and opportunities to grow as future professionals, to maneuver through challenges in pursuing their calling, and to become people we are proud to call alumni.
Programs of Study — When your son or daughter earns a degree at SEU, they’ll learn in an innovative, Christ-centered environment. They’ll be equipped to serve as a competent professional through Spirit-empowered, ethical practice informed by critical thinking, lifelong learning, and leadership. SEU is proud to offer degrees in multiple disciplines. Click here for a complete listing of our current programs.
Faculty Who Care — As authentic Christians who lead by example, SEU faculty members voluntarily use their own time to provide your student with support and true caring. While they are highly accomplished in their fields and bring practical experience to the classroom, they are also effective teachers who make learning engaging and meaningful. Meet our faculty.
Fire Ready is the official clearance process of SEU. In order for your student to be able to start their semester on time, please ensure that all steps in this process are completed before their arrival on campus each semester.
Your student can check their Fire Ready status at any time in the MyPortal (JICS) student system.
The Parent Portal gives parents online visibility into student information, and allows students to control and share with parents (or other parties) the information they want online — helping SEU meet the requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
If your son or daughter is a prospective student-athlete, visit our Fire Athletics website to contact coaches and email videos. Our award-winning athletic teams compete and claim championship titles within the NAIA.
Looking at the value of college means seeing more than just dollar signs. Attending a Christian university is a worthwhile investment. At Southeastern University, we firmly believe that our campus culture and commitment to integrating faith into our classrooms helps students not only to maintain their faith, but also to make it stronger.
From campus to career, our job is to help our students be as successful as possible, so our variety of support services makes it easy for students to find the help they want and the resources they need.
