Group-Specific Tuition Rates

Contact our enrollment team to inquire about the current group-specific rates for your organization. 

Tuition Payment

Southwestern College provides a variety of tuition payment arrangements.  It is important that students communicate with our staff early to ensure appropriate paperwork is submitted in a timely manner as payment arrangements are required prior to the start of class.

Employer Reimbursement

If employer offers company reimbursement, Southwestern College can bill your company directly. We will require a letter from your employer (on company letterhead) prior to your first class. The letter must state what tuition benefits are available to you, and where we send the invoice. If for any reason your employer does not pay for the tuition and fee charges, the student is responsible for full payment.

Financial Aid

Financial Aid is available for students who qualify. You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and all other required documents to apply for federal student loans and grants. Financial Aid counselors are available to assist you with your questions.

VA and Tuition Assistance

Southwestern College gladly assists our service members and veterans in processing their tuition assistance and veteran’s benefits.

Payment Plans

For those who are unable to pay tuition in full prior to class start date, Southwestern offers payment plan options. A $30/semester nonrefundable fee will be assessed for all payment plans. The standard payment plan allows payment over 5 months in the fall and spring semesters, and over 3 months in the summer semester. Students activate the payment plans through their Self-Service account.

Withdrawal Policy

If you are considering a withdraw, it is strongly recommended that you read the section on Changes to Enrollment located in the Financial Aid Handbook.  If you are using financial aid to pay for your classes, you should also read Southwestern College’s Return of Title IV Funds policy.  It is a good idea to reach out to both your academic success coach and the Office of Financial Aid if you are considering dropping one of your classes.
