Academic Affairs

Our goal at Southwest is for you to leave Southwest better than you were when you came.  Most would immediately think about the knowledge and skills learned in classes, and we have educated and caring faculty who work hard trying to share some of that knowledge with the students. 

Increased knowledge is just the beginning of what you can obtain on our campus.  Friendships that can last a lifetime can start on this campus.  Leadership skills can be enhanced from experiences on the campus.

Maturity, responsibility, and a sense of community are additional skills available through the Southwest college experience.  And you can start a life of making wise financial decisions here, because you are getting a great education while not spending as much of your or your parents’ money. 

You can get an associate’s degree and leave our college without educational loan debt!
