About Southeastern Louisiana University

Whether you’re a high school student looking to get a bachelor’s degree, an aspiring Environmental Scientist interested in research-based studies, an adult learner who would like to get a bachelor’s degree or training in basic Reading or Math skills, or an arts-oriented person with an inclination towards theatre and radio, Southeastern Louisiana University (SELU) in Hammond, Louisiana has something for you.

Undergraduate and graduate programs are conducted through several distinctive schools, including the College of Liberal Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, the School of Business, a Nursing School and a College of Education and Human Development.

Beyond this, some of SELU’s special programs include those offered at the Turtle Cove Science facility. Here, graduate students and faculty engage in Environmental Research and educational activities for the community.

There is also the Livingston Parish Literary Center where adults may get basic skills training.

Distance learning options, an honors track and degree programs for veterans are some additional offerings outside of the mainstream degree programs.

Student life also has something for everyone. A student theatre organization, student-run radio and television stations and numerous student organizations and community service opportunities are just some of these non-academic offerings.

An equal number of financial aid opportunities also exist. In addition to standard loans, grants and scholarships, SELU has tuition-assistance programs for those who hail from backgrounds that are challenged in specific ways. Tuition is also lower for Louisiana state residents.

Admission requirements to SELU differ according to the program for which one is seeking entry.

Overall i think that Southeastern is a very unique school. What i Liked Most of all is the orientation program, they make sure that you are welcomed in a very comfortable manner. My tip for anybody would just to be yourself and let your inner rockstar out because you are no longer in high school its about time for you to start living life.
