Financial Aid Office:
The Financial Aid Office at Southeastern hosts a significant variety of institutional and external sources of financial aid. Southeastern’s institutional sources of aid includes all of its various in-house funds, while external sources include funds which may be available to Southeastern students from outside the institution. Please note, however, Southeastern does not accept any Title IV funding from the federal government. Students seeking financial aid should first complete Southeastern’s Standard Financial Aid Application as well as pursue and apply for as many other scholarships for which they may be eligible. Scholarship awards are committee-recommended and are based on a variety of parameters, such as need, merit, donor specifications, consideration of other awarded aid, and the availability of funds.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM & SBC RATE
Due to the generosity of commissioning churches within the SBC, Southeastern is able to provide a substantial amount of aid to its students who are members of an SBC church. This amount is equivalent to 50% of what a student would normally pay for tuition and fees, and is considered a significant source of Financial Aid.
