Registered Sex Offender Information
Under federal law, certain sex offenders who are already required to register in a state must provide notice of each institution of higher education in that state, at which that person is employed, carries on a vocation, or is a student. Therefore, if any individual is required to register as a sex offender in a state and indicates that he or she is employed, carries on a vocation, or is a student at Southeast Missouri State University, that information will promptly be made available to the Department of Public Safety at Southeast Missouri State University. http://www.semo.edu/dps/registered_sex_offenders.htm.
