Ready to begin your journey? Follow these steps to enroll:
1. Apply for Admission

Complete an Application for Admission. Southeast Tech accepts high school graduates or students over the age of 16 with a completed GED.

2. Submit your Transcripts

High School: Request your official high school 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.

  • If you have received or will be receiving a “modified” high school transcript, please contact the Admissions Office to verify that your modified high school transcript will meet Southeast Tech’s admissions requirements. Each situation will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
  • High school transcripts and diplomas from other countries are acceptable toward the student eligibility general requirements, as long as, the diploma is equivalent to a United States high school diploma. In order to determine the equivalency, students would need to complete a transcript evaluation from a reputable organization. We currently accept transcript evaluations from ECE, WES, NAEG, Evaluation Services, Inc. and any evaluation services listed on the NACES member list. If college credit has been obtained in a foreign country, ECE is only acceptable organization Southeast Tech will award transfer credit.

College: If you are transferring in from another college, request your official college transcript be sent directly to Southeast Tech. Students need to submit a stamped, official college transcript directly to Southeast Tech in a sealed envelope in order for transfer credit to be evaluated. Official college transcripts that have been opened by the student and delivered to Southeast Tech are no longer deemed official.

3. Submit Test Scores

Send in your ACT or SAT scores or talk to your Admissions Specialist about taking the Next-Generation Accuplacer exam.

4. Complete Additional Program Requirements

Complete any additional steps that are required for your program. Refer to your program applicant checklist. Examples include: Background checks and drug screens, additional immunization records and safety tests.

Once you are accepted, take your next steps following the Accepted Student Checklist.
