Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

4.18 Average Rating
The school is definitely a bit pricey, but so worth it. And the financial aid office really works with students to get them there without leaving in heaps of debt.
Lydia from Zephyrhills, FL
This is my first time going to a college but I think so.
Victoria from Ocala, FL
It's a little pricey but it seems worth it.
Hannah from Auburn, MA
This is a great school but it is very expensive. Luckily, they have great scholarship opportunities.
Savannah from LaBelle, FL
The school is really expensive, but I think the quality of the education is worth the cost. Your not going to get the interaction and one on one time with other schools like you can here.
Daphne from Lakeland, FL
The price of tuition is well worth the education one receives.
Bethany from Lakeland, FL
it is expensive, but there isn't another place like it. one of the best qualities of southeastern is the chapel services, which are uncontested among rival christian schools.
Derek from Sebring, FL
All freshmen are required to meet together once a week during their first semester for what is called First Year Experience. The meetings last 45-50 minutes and their purpose is to make sure that everyone has a chance to meet other freshmen and become acclimated to the culture of the university. Also, there is opportunity to join a small group and participate in any one of numerous chapel services each week. These all provide opportunities to meet others and develop new friendships.
