Resignation Procedure

Your education is extremely important to us here at Southeastern. While we don’t like to see any of our students leave, we do understand that there is life outside of Southeastern and that our students are faced with difficult decisions about the future. This page will provide you with the necessary information and procedures to completely resign from your enrollment. Please keep in mind that resigning from Southeastern may impact the following areas on your student account:

  • Financial Aid Eligibility
  • Southeastern Billing
  • University Housing
  • Athletic Eligibility
  • Health Insurance

 

Also, please be aware that resigning from Southeastern may cause adjustments to be made to your Financial Aid and your university charges. These adjustments may create a bill on your account.

Your Academic Department
Prior to resigning from Southeastern, students are encouraged to speak with their professors and/or their academic advisor to be sure it is the best option for their future academic progress.  

Office of Financial Aid – finaid@southeastern.edu | (985) 549-5309
Students attending Southeastern Louisiana University who are receiving federal Title IV financial aid (e.g., Direct Subsidized Loans, Direct Unsubsidized Loans, Pell Grant, or SEOG) are required to return the portion of unearned federal aid if they withdraw, do not register, or otherwise fail to complete the period of enrollment for which the Title IV aid was provided. Once a student has completed 60% or more of the semester, the student is considered to have earned all Title IV funds that were provided. In this instance, no funds would be returned.

Additionally, for students receiving institutional or state scholarships (i.e. TOPS, LA Go Grant), a reduction or cancellation of these awards may be required depending on the date of course withdrawal or University resignation.

Controller’s Office – studentaccounts@southeastern.edu | (985) 549-2068
Students who withdraw from Southeastern Louisiana University are responsible for payment of all outstanding charges on the student account. If an outstanding balance is created as a result of a return of financial aid funds, the student is responsible for paying those charges, as well as any pre-existing outstanding charges. Students will not be able to re-enroll at Southeastern or request an official transcript if any balance remains on the account.

University Housing – universityhousing@southeastern.edu | (985) 549-2118
Students who have withdrawn from the university are not permitted to live in University Housing, and should notify the University Housing office immediately.

Dining Services – dining@southeastern.edu | (985) 549-2286
