Financial Aid Services

The objective of the Financial Services Department at Southeastern College is to provide assistance to students who need financial aid in order to pay for tuition expenses at the College. The Financial Services Department has established procedures which assure fair and consistent treatment of all applicants.

Southeastern College uses the “Free Application for Federal Students Aid” to document and collect information for determining the student’s eligibility for financial aid. The information that the student reports on the FASFA is confidential. FASFAs may be obtained at www.FAFSA.ED.GOV

The Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), should be submitted by the end of the first week of the semester the student begins classes in. Students interested in federal funding must complete a FAFSA Form to apply for college financial aid and meet with their respective campus financial aid officer.

TA Funding

  • Tuition Assistance funds are a unique, distinct source of financial aid available to eligible Service members, TA is used as a first payer. Southeastern College cannot guarantee Service members eligibility to receive TA funding as those decisions are made between the student and their respective branch of service.
  • Active Duty students MUST meet with their respective branch of service to ensure TA funding is available and learn about the application process and responsibility of the student before they enroll in any class. This includes each Military Service’s education portal and Education Service Office (if applicable) for additional information and regulatory requirements.

What is a Cohort Default Rate?
For schools having 30 or more borrowers entering repayment in a fiscal year, the school’s cohort default rate (CDR) is the percentage of a school’s borrowers who enter repayment on certain Federal Family Education Loans (FFELs) and/or William D. Ford Federal Direct Loans (Direct Loans) during that fiscal year and default within the cohort default period.
