At one point, SEU was negotiating to merge with UDC, but now it looks like they may become a part of the GS Graduate School, which is affiliated with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and has a campus near L'Enfant Plaza.According to the [Middle States Commission on Higher Education's] report, 14 percent of first-time students seeking bachelor's degrees there graduate within six years. Southeastern officials have been hoping to merge with the GS Graduate School, which provides continuing education to more than 200,000 students a year. [Interim President Elaine] Ryan has said she can't talk about the potential merger because of a confidentiality agreement; officials at GS Graduate said they are examining Southeastern's finances and operations and might make a decision next month.
