Eligible students can receive VA benefits. However, CHEA is not on the list of accreditations that is recognized by the Secretary of Education.

Mission statement[edit]

Southeastern Baptist College exists to glorify God by providing quality post-secondary education from a biblical world view in a Christian atmosphere.


Southeastern Baptist College is owned, and operated by the Baptist Missionary Association of the state of Mississippi and governed by a board of trustees elected annually by the association.


Students benefit not only from the aspect of expanding their minds through Christian Education, but through the small class sizes, which allows for more "one on one" time for the teachers and students.

The college offers a dormitories for both males and females, but has no meal plans. Although vending machines are available, commuters and dorm residents would have to get their meals outside of the college.

The college does not have an athletic program so therefore, it does not have an official mascot nor school colors.
