- Request your official high school/college transcript or GED certificate be sent to Southeast Tech. If your high school records are listed under a different name, have the high school place your current name on the transcript. Still in high school? No worries, send us your partial transcript for now, and we’ll request an official one once you’ve graduated. Download the High School/College Transcript Form.

- Complete any additional program requirements for your major.
- After acceptance to Southeast Tech, submit your immunization information. Information about immunizations can be found here. If you are not able to receive the required MMR immunizations due to medical or religious reasons, you may choose to complete the Exemption Form and return it to the Admission Office.
- Once you’re accepted, you'll receive an invitation in the mail to register for an Academic Advisement and Registration (AAR) event to get enrolled in your classes, meet your advisors, get your official Student ID card, and learn about the different student activities and resources available to our students! If you have any questions about AAR, you can call the Student Success Center at 605.367.7466.
