Military Rate

Southeastern is committed to honoring the men and women of the United States Armed Forces. Our desire is to facilitate your education and ensure you receive the maximum benefits for which you are entitled. In an effort to show our appreciation, we offer a military tuition rate to qualified active-duty members and veterans.

“Southeastern now provides one of the best military discounts in theological education! This is a school that understands the sacrifice that our freedom cost Jesus. As a result, they want to recognize the warriors that have sacrificed for our country. At Southeastern you will find students with a sincere desire to change the world and faculty who are passionate about the Great Commission. Together they make Southeastern the ideal training environment for future leaders in Jesus’ kingdom.”
-Jeff Struecker, Ph.D.
