You, the student, are our top priority. Offering associate degrees and certificate programs, Southwest serves first-time students, high school graduates, adults and business professionals. Our programs will prepare you for entry into the workforce or for transfer to a four-year institution. In addition, our various sites will give you the convenience you need to fit classes into your busy schedule.

Our transfer agreements with several area schools will help you seamlessly continue your college education. We also offer a dual admissions program to home school students as well as local school districts.

We offer several different types of scholarships and awards to incoming students and current students to help lessen the cost of a college education. Dozens of students receive scholarships and awards every year.
