Required Admissions Materials for International Graduate Students

Transcripts and Official Records

Southeastern requires official records of all colleges attended, showing subjects
taken and grades received as well as any national or government certificates earned.
Notarized translations into English is also required.

Official transcripts must be sent directly to Southeastern from the institution (if
not, please send the original official document you were issued). Any photocopies
must be attested by the school. Transcripts that are faxed or sent through email will NOT be accepted.

Students are also required to send a course by course evaluation of all courses taken.
Evaluations can be obtained from any of the following companies:
SpanTran Pathways – Southeastern has a tailored application for all applicants choosing Spantran services
and this link takes you directly to it. Evaluations arrive to us electronically making
the process faster for all applicants.

In addition, course descriptions from the school’s catalogue of courses should also
be sent directly to Southeastern by the student or school. All international course
work will transfer to Southeastern with a grade of “Pass” or “Fail.” A cumulative
grade point average is still calculated from the original transcript for admission

Please note that Southeastern International Admissions has a policy of imaging all
official transcripts received and then destroying the originals.  If you wish us not
to destroy the original, please let us know by attaching a note to the transcript
stating “Please do not destroy, return original to student” Be sure to include your
mailing address and phone number.




Most graduate programs require either the GRE or the GMAT. Scores must be sent to
us directly from the testing company. The school code for the GRE is 6656. No photocopies, attested scores, or online results will be accepted.


Proof of Immunization

Each student is required to present proof of immunization for measles, mumps, and
rubella (both initial booster and shot), meningococcal meningitis, and tetanus-diptheria
(within the last 10 years) or file the request for exemption before registration is
allowed. For more information, please visit the Immunization Requirements page.

If you are missing any of the required vaccinations due to personal, religious, or
medical reasons, you may select the option on the second page of the immunization
form then date and sign it.

TOEFL and IELTS Scores

Proficiency in English is required. All students whose education was earned outside
of the United States or whose native language is not English are required to furnish
a TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or IELTS (International English Language
Testing System) score.

Scores must be sent directly from the testing company. The school code to send TOEFL
scores to Southeastern is 6656. Students may also mail their original hardcopy results. No photocopies, attested scores, or online results will be accepted.



Students who need to apply for the F1 or J1 student visa, will be required to submit
a copy of their valid passport biographical page so that we may issue the I-20/DS-2019.


Financial Statement of Support

Fees and expenses at Southeastern are estimated to be at least $31,956 for graduate
students for one academic year, not including the summer term. This figure includes
tuition, housing, meals, textbook rental and health insurance, but does not include
the cost of transportation to and from the United States. This amount is subject to
change at any time. A financial statement of support together with a letter from the certifying financial
institution must be submitted for any student who requires an I-20 or DS-2019.
