Southeastern Institute, a private, nationally accredited institution of higher learning with locations in North Charleston, S.C., Charlotte, N.C., and Columbia, S.C., announced today that it will change its name to Southeastern College effective immediately.
“Moving from Southeastern Institute to College is a great step forward for the Southeastern schools in North and South Carolina,” said Robert Keiser, Executive Director of Southeastern College. “This change demonstrates our commitment to continue meeting the needs of an everchanging workforce.”
The move from Institute to College follows a year of sustained growth in 2020 and the addition of new academic majors meant to address growing workforce needs throughout the Carolinas.
“Our school system is growing, and we want to ensure our name and our brand reflect both our recent evolution and the progress we anticipate in the years to come,” said Keiser.
Southeastern Institute’s Columbia and North Charleston campuses both added four new programs in 2020 which include an Associate of Applied Science Degree (AAS) in Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Associate of Applied Science in Radiologic Technology, AAS in Information Technology and Network Systems, and an AAS in Business Administration. All four programs received approval from the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education (CHE) and have begun enrolling at the campuses.
Southeastern Institute’s Charlotte campus has also seen its share of growth in 2020. The school moved into a new 32,000 square-foot campus in January which includes new classrooms and labs designed for hands-on instruction and clinical internships. The campus also recently added a diploma in basic x-ray technology.
Southeastern College’s academic programs have always focused on the specialized skills and knowledge needed for today’s marketplace by providing courses that apply to skill performance and career management development. The addition of new academic programs, along with the name transition, follow Southeastern’s plan to continually provide quality career education and skill development to aspiring individuals in a student first environment.
“A change in name will not alter our commitment to a student first education or our focus on preparing students for careers,” said Keiser. “These characteristics are central to our mission and are typically the reason our students choose Southeastern College for their education.”
With the addition of the campuses in North and South Carolina, the Southeastern College system grows to five total campuses which include two locations in South Florida; Miami Lakes and West Palm Beach.
Founded in 1988 as Cruise Career Training Institute, Southeastern College is committed to providing quality career education and skill development in a personalized environment devoted to student success. Accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), Southeastern College has locations in Miami, FL and West Palm Beach, FL.
