Transfer and Returning

Your first step to your best future starts here.

The first step to admission is completing the online application, which covers admission to the university and all university-sponsored scholarships.

Who counts as a transfer applicant?

Transfer students have already begun taking college credit courses after high school. Transfer students’ required materials and criteria are different depending on how many credit hours you will be transferring with you.

Who counts as a returning applicant?

A returning applicant is any student who has previously attended Southeastern (aside from dual enrollment or Southeastern Scholars). Students who have attended another institution since leaving Southeastern are still considered returning students.
