     HAMMOND – Southeastern announced it will again be offering a $300 scholarship for all undergraduate, graduate and guest students enrolling for Summer Smart classes. Qualifying high school students are also able to take advantage of the tuition savings.
     “Many college students use the summer semester as a time to catch up, get ahead or even get started on a new path. Summer Smart at Southeastern is a unique opportunity in that students can enroll in high-demand courses with significant savings,” said Kay Maurin, chief enrollment management officer.
     High school students who have an ACT score of 24 or higher combined with grade point average of 3.0 or greater qualify for the Southeastern Scholars program. In this program, tuition is covered for the summer semester for two courses or six credit hours.
     Summer at Southeastern also means Summer Orientation Programs. During orientation, new and transfer students learn what Southeastern offers in academic programs and resources.
     “We are excited to once again offer orientation in a hybrid online format for this summer. Across campus, faculty and staff are eager to provide a worthwhile experience for our future Lions,” said Director of Admissions Anthony Ranatza. “As the University continues to follow current safety measures, plans for the late summer include in-person programs to ensure new students are prepared for a successful start in August.”
     Preparations are also underway for the fall semester.
     “With expanding access to COVID-19 vaccines, we are seeing steady progression toward achieving a more normal and familiar fall semester, including as much face-to-face instruction as possible while still ensuring the health and safety of our campus community,” said Maurin.
     New and returning students can apply for Summer Smart enrollment until May 1 and apply for fall semester through July 15 without a late fee. For information on applying to Southeastern, visit or call 1-800-222-7358. Summer Smart information can be found at
