Why do I need to take leveling courses for my MBA?
The leveling courses are required for students that do not possess an undergraduate business degree or either didn’t complete the course in their business degree or scored a “C” or better in the course. The prerequisites/leveling requirement can be fulfilled using the JMSB MBA Prep Program via the following link. https://www.mbaprepworks.com/local/iomad_signup/signup.php?id=68&code=SoutheasternOkStateMBA
How much are the leveling courses?
Each course cost $300.00 and you may pay for/take one course at a time or all the courses at once. The courses are not for-credit; thus, they will not be reported on your transcript or qualify for Financial Aid. There are no time constrains from the time you purchase the course in order to complete it except for meeting the requirement prior to enrolling in the MBA course for which the prerequisite is required. Students must obtain an 80% or better on each leveling course. Within each leveling course, you may only take the test three (3) times before you will have to pay for the course again.
There are no refunds on the purchase of leveling courses, once a student accesses the course.
Am I able to transfer courses into the MBA program?
The JMSB MBA Program allows up to nine (9) hours of transfer courses. To be considered, the courses must be from an accredited Business Master’s Program, completed within the allowable six (6) years’ time frame for completion of your MBA at SE and with a grade of B or better. To request consideration for transfer courses, the student must provide a copy of the course syllabus/syllabi. Once received, the syllabus/syllabi will be sent to the MBA faculty to review. The MBA faculty’s decision on whether the course will transfer (substitute) will be final. The course syllabus/syllabi must be forwarded to email@example.com with a written request stating which JMSB MBA course the student is seeking the transfer.
What are the next steps once accepted into the MBA program??
Once accepted into the MBA Program, the student will need to complete a MBA Degree Plan. The Plan – along with a completed example –is included at the end of this document - and will be included in the student’s initial acceptance email. The student will need to select his/her emphasis, review the core and emphasis course term/semester offerings and complete the degree plan with his/her best estimate on how he/she plans to complete the courses required for the degree. Once completed , the student will need to sign and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org for processing.
Why is AACSB important?
The JMSB is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). AACSB Accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education and is earned by less than five percent of business programs world-wide. To obtain and maintain AACSB Accreditation, schools must meet a stringent set of standards of excellence and commit to an ongoing continuous improvement to ensure the school delivers the highest quality of education to students.
Why is GSP important?
The Graduate Safety Practitioner (GSP) designation is offered by the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP). It makes the Southeastern Oklahoma State Occupational Safety Department a Qualified Academic program (QAP) which entitles graduates to bypass the first part of the Certified Safety Professional exam (also known as the Associate Safety professional (ASP) and move directly to the CSP exam. It also entitles graduates to add the initials GSP after their name upon graduation.

There are many people with disabilities who want a chance to be full participants in life. The faculty and staff of Southeastern have a major role in students' lives and it is very important that we meet the needs of all our students. Most of us have had limited contact with people with disabilities and we are sometimes unsure of how to respond, but by becoming involved and informed, our students will have a greater chance to reach their full potential.
Please remember that it is not helpful to the students of the University for you to accommodate a student outside of the process. SE has exemplary policies, as cited by the Office of Civil Rights (OCR). OCR has used our policies as models for other Universities to follow. Acting outside of the Policies can create situations where unnecessary accommodations become necessary. The best way to assist your students with accommodations is to follow our written policies.
