Students do not need an ACT or SAT score to be admitted. Southeast also expanded the institutional scholarships now available without a test score and increased the value of academic scholarships that students can obtain as test optional. "This expansion of test optional admissions and scholarships, and elimination of our application fee are among many actions the University has taken to provide greater access to higher education," said Southeast President Dr. Carlos Vargas. "Expansion of the test optional program is even more important today as the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of many ACT and SAT testing dates."
From the towering trees to the largest river in North America. From the historic buildings to the copper dome that perches above the city. From the rolling hills to the people waving hello. Yeah, there’s just something about our campus.
Don’t take our word for it. Schedule a private campus tour or visit our virtual campus visit experience to see for yourself from the comfort of your home!
At Southeast, we know the value of a college education. And, we think everyone should be able to afford that value. It’s the reason we designed a scholarship program where 70% of our students are eligible. It’s why we don’t have an application fee. It’s why we’re test optional. It’s why we created our Will To Do Award, so eligible Pell students would pay $0 in tuition and fees.
And, if you’re thinking that all sounds too good to be true, Southeast is living proof that high quality doesn’t have to mean high cost. While our tuition is lower than the national average, you’ll find we’re still one of Missouri’s most accredited institutions.
That quality combined with abundant real-world learning opportunities mean you start building your resume almost as soon as you set foot on campus and you’re career-ready when you leave campus. SEMO doesn’t want to just be affordable or just be high quality. We want to be a smart investment, so you launch an extraordinary career and can excel on day one.
We give everything we’ve got and earn everything we get. Because progress isn’t promised to anybody. It will be made by those with the courage to question. The hunger to know. And the will to do.
