Teaching Certificates

Teaching Certificates are required for some Education master's degree programs. Please refer to the graduate section of the catalog for this information.



An applicant is admitted to the Graduate School upon acceptance and admission into a specific graduate degree program. Meeting the requirements for admission does not guarantee admission, only eligibility. Individual departments have their own deadline dates and standards for admission. These standards incorporate both qualitative and quantitative criteria more specific than those established by the University. Only individual program graduate coordinators/directors or graduate faculty advisors may recommend the admission of applicants into specific graduate degree programs.


Deadline & Payment Information

Any graduate applicant who has previously been suspended from Southeastern must appeal for readmission. If you have not been enrolled for 12 months or more, you must also reapply for admissions and pay the application fee. If you earn an undergraduate or graduate degree, you must reapply for admission in order to pursue another degree.

All applicants for admission must submit the application and non-refundable application fee based on the dates & deadlines. Graduate School applicants should make note of the Graduate School Application deadlines as well to ensure timely review of the application by their individual program.

The completed application form, payment of required fees, official transcripts, and official results of standardized tests should be submitted to the Graduate Admissions Office on or before the date noted for the specific semester the student wishes to enroll. Applications must be accompanied by the payment of the non-refundable application fee. Individual departments or programs may have earlier deadline dates for consideration of applications. It is the applicant's responsibility to be aware of specific deadline dates.


Application fees can be submitted to the Controller's Office by mail at SLU 10720, Hammond, LA 70402 or by phone at (985) 549-2068.
