In the wake of standardized test dates getting canceled across the nation in the spring, Southeast President Carlos Vargas announced Wed. Sept. 9 at a press conference the university is expanding test-optional admissions and scholarships for new students in Fall 2021.

Southeast began offering test-optional scholarships in Fall 2019, but the minimum GPA to qualify was a 3.5. In Fall 2021, the number will be lowered to 2.75 to accommodate students who did not have the ability to take a standardized test.
