Eight Enrollment Sessions Per Year

Southwestern College Professional Studies offers 6-week sessions (the only exception are classes offered within the education curriculum) that begin eight times per year. We’ve found this schedule to be extremely helpful to adult learners who want a quality education in a condensed time period. Our schedule also allows you the flexibility to stop and start if your personal schedule demands you do so.
