Test-Optional Admissions

Test-Optional Admissions

Southeast expanded its test-optional admissions and scholarship offerings available to beginning freshman entering Southeast in fall 2021.

Prospective students can now be admitted to Southeast with a 2.75 cumulative high school grade point average and the required high school core curriculum. Students do not need an ACT or SAT score to be admitted and can self-report their academic record when they apply. Institutional scholarships are now available without a test score. Southeast also increased the value of academic scholarships that students can obtain as test-optional.

Southeast’s 2021-2022 scholarship program expanded to assist students with the cost of their education. This includes increasing test-optional maximum scholarship value, reducing academic requirements to renew the scholarships, and making the award values progressive.

Southeast’s Will To Do Award guarantees eligible Pell students from Missouri the opportunity to attend and pay zero dollars in tuition and general fees.

Expansion of the test optional program is even more important today as the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of many ACT and SAT testing dates.
