Southeast Missouri State University (Southeast or SEMO) is a public university in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. In addition to the main campus, the university has four regional campuses offering full degree programs and a secondary campus housing the Holland College of Arts and Media. The university is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.

Enrolling nearly 12,000 students, Southeast offers more than 175 undergraduate degree programs and 75 graduate programs. Originally founded in 1873 as a normal school, the university has a traditional strength in teacher education. In recent years, the university's reputation and focus has shifted towards the arts, with the construction of the River Campus creating the state's only campus entirely dedicated to the visual and performing arts.[7] It is the only four year institution of higher education in the Southeast Missouri area.

  • SEMO is known for being one of the most affordable universities in the state. With more than $20 million awarded annually, there’s an excellent opportunity to earn scholarships to help cover the costs of education.
  • At SEMO, it’s almost impossible to find a program that wouldn’t suit students interests. From Creative Writing to Nursing to Cybersecurity to Agribusiness, there are plenty of majors to choose from. With countless minors to choose from as well, students are able to customize the perfect degree.
  • Earning degree is the goal of a student, but becoming involved with campus community is important as well. SEMO has more than 200 student organizations student can join or even lead.
  • When we talk about proximity, we simply mean you’re incredibly close to fun sites off-campus. In fact, our campus shuttles actually run into downtown Cape Girardeau, allowing you to walk by the river, grab a coffee, do some shopping, and more, all without needing to drive your own vehicle. If you do want to drive, you’re minutes away from many restaurants and shopping to suit any taste. We also have the W.I.N.G.S. shuttle on weekends, a service that will take you to specific locations in Cape Girardeau in case you don’t want to drive or don’t have access to a vehicle.
  • One of the many awesome things about SEMO is its faculty. They are ready and willing to help students not only make the transition to college, but help students along the way. Student will have support from day one. All you have to do is ask.
