Southeastern Institute, a nationally accredited, private network of career colleges with a campus in Columbia and North Charleston, has changed its name to Southeastern College.
The change signifies a year of growth in 2020, which saw the Columbia and North Charleston locations each add four programs, according to a news release.
“Moving from Southeastern Institute to College is a great step forward for the Southeastern schools in North and South Carolina,” Robert Keiser, Southeastern College executive director, said in the release. “This change demonstrates our commitment to continue meeting the needs of an everchanging workforce.”
The four new programs, which received approval from the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education and have begun enrolling students, include associate’s degrees in diagnostic medical sonography, radiologic technology, information technology and network systems, and business administration.
“Our school system is growing, and we want to ensure our name and our brand reflect both our recent evolution and the progress we anticipate in the years to come,” Keiser said.
Southeastern College, accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges, also has a campus in Charlotte, along with locations in Miami Lakes and West Palm Beach, Fla. Its Columbia campus, located at 1628 Browning Road, also offers programs including professional clinical massage therapy, electronic medical billing and coding, and occupational therapy.
