Earn your degree from SEU as you gain hands-on experience in a community of churches in the Northwest.

Southeastern University (SEU) — a private, Christian university based in Lakeland, Florida — has been producing strong Christian leaders since 1935. Since 2013, we have been broadening access to an affordable Christian college education through the SEU Network — which has been successfully implemented in more than 260 locations worldwide.

The SEU Network provides university-level learning and practical knowledge while serving the local church. As the newest phase of the Network, SEU Northwest takes this model to the next level. By forming a collaboration among churches in the northwest, we are creating an exciting, unique hub of shared resources and life-changing student experiences.


From worship to production to ministry, you’ll gain practical experience in these local churches.

Examples of practicum experiences may include production, youth ministry, children’s ministry, and worship.

Not at all; SEU Northwest is designed to prepare students to be leaders in their career field of choice through our multiple degree options. While practicum experiences are church-based, the work experience and skills learned can be applied to a wide array of careers.

SEU Northwest is designed to keep education as affordable as possible.
