This is an amazing Christian university. I am being challenged and growing in many areas that God would have for me. By the end of my college experience, I will receive a certificate in Christian Ministries from Highlands College and an Associate of Christian Ministries from Southeastern University. The best is yet to come!

The staff are so patient and so helpful and willing to help all they can with new students and current students! Absolutely positive people and amazing choices for courses, the registrar is very helpful when you are deciding what courses you want to take and also offer help finding jobs for your degrees! The campus is clean and beautiful they take pride in their school academics are great there is such diversity in this school.
I've been an online student at Southeastern University for the past year. It has been a good experience! I wasn't always satisfied with the limited time to complete assignments, nor was I always satisfied with the content of the courses offered. However, I've enjoyed the interaction, though limited, with professors and students. I've learned a lot and grown a lot!
