Academics

Founded in 1997 as the Southeastern School of Neuromuscular Massage of Columbia to provide a clinically based curriculum in the Professional Massage Therapy training program, the Southeastern Institute Columbia today seeks to fulfill the need, in healthcare, for highly skilled, clinically trained professionals. After being acquired by Dr. Arthur and Belinda Keiser, the name of the school was changed to the Southeastern Institute in 2009 and the course offerings expanded beyond Massage Therapy. Today the Southeastern Institute has campuses in Charleston, South Carolina; Nashville, Tennessee; Charlotte, North Carolina; and of course Columbia, South Carolina.

The campus of the Southeastern Institute Columbia, South Carolina, features 5,700 feet of clean, quiet, and air conditioned classrooms, a media center, bookstore, and offices. Students receive the benefits of not only lectures, but real-world learning via hands-on instruction and clinical internships. State-of-the-art materials are used like audio-visual equipment, portable treatment tables, skeletons, and anatomical charts. Class sizes are kept small to offer students individual attention, and class schedules are flexible, offering daytime and evening schedules for students with previous commitments. The academic year is split into 3 semesters to help students achieve their educational goals in a timely fashion. After graduation, Alumni receive job placement assistance from SI Columbia.

At Southeastern Institute Columbia diploma and certificate awarding programs include professional clinical massage therapy, medical billing and coding, and medical assisting. Professional clinical massage therapy students must log 90 hours of practical clinical experience and receive a certificate. Continuing education opportunities include coursework such as “deep tissue classes made easy,” “massage ethics,” and “top ten trigger points for easing pain.” Accreditation for Southeastern Institute academic certificate and degree awarding programs is provided by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges of Technology, and the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education. The Southeastern Institute is associated with Keiser Career College, a 2 year institution focused on student skill performance and career management development.

Unique Programs

At Southeastern Institute, students and members of the public from the surrounding community are invited to attend student clinics.

There is a small fee for each session, lasting around 50 minutes. Students or community members should call the school in advance to make an appointment.

Admissions

To be considered for admission to Southeastern Institute, prospective students should begin by speaking with an admissions coordinator. Prospective students will have the opportunity to discuss their desired program of study, take a guided tour of the campus, and benefit from the SI Columbia Career Presentation. Enrollment must be fully completed well before the applicant’s desired enrollment date.

All applicants must present a record, transcript or diploma confirming high school graduation or equivalent (GED). For international students, proof of graduation from a foreign institution comparable to a US secondary school must be provided. Students who were home schooled must present proper state credentials. Applicants must provide Admissions with results from either the SATs, ACTs, or take an entrance examination administered by Southeastern Institute.

Students

At Southeastern Institute, the student body is extremely small, totaling well under 500 students. This allows students to benefit greatly from individual attention and frequent opportunities for one-on-one instruction. There is ample free parking on campus, allowing students to easily get back and forth from home or work to this commuter campus. The majority of students are women by about a 85% to 15%, and most students study full time. The average student is between the age of 25 and 34, meaning that Southeastern Institute Columbia is popular for those looking to make a career change, as opposed to recent high school graduates. Although, nearly 20% of all students fall into the age range between 18 and 21.
