About SOSU

Founded in 1909, Southeastern Oklahoma State University provides an environment of academic excellence that enables students to reach their highest potential. Southeastern Oklahoma State University strives to provide professional, academic and career-oriented educational programs to meet the changing needs of the workforce.

Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant, Oklahoma, is a state school with a small student body. Students can therefore get the benefit of a larger, public university while still receiving a friendly, personalized education. Southeastern also does its best to make tuition as affordable as possible, offering numerous financial aid resources.

Southeastern's undergraduate programs of study feature a cross-section of disciplines including:

  • Business
  • Fine Art
  • Humanities
  • Natural and Social Sciences

Still, since the number of enrolled students generally remains under 5,000, classes remain small enough for students to get personal attention.

Because of its fairly small student body, there are also many opportunities to meet fellow students. One way of doing this is through one of Southeastern's more than 50 student organizations or through the school's active volunteer service division.

Those interested in applying for undergraduate admission will need to have a grade point average of at least 2.7 and college-preparatory classes in such subjects as English, Math and History. An ACT score of at least 19 or an SAT reading score of at least 460 is also required. In addition to transcripts and test scores, students must submit an admissions application.

Southeastern's tuition is significantly lower for Oklahoma state residents. All students may also receive financial aid from a number of sources.

Scholarships are awarded based on academic performance, extracurricular activities and, at times, even financial need. Other strictly need-based aid sources include grants and loans.

Certain individuals may also receive tuition waivers or reductions through Veteran's Affairs, Rehabilitation Services and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
