Southwestern College is committed to supporting and providing quality and affordable degree programs to military spouses. Southwestern College offers several portable degree programs including Bachelor’s degrees in Nursing, Elementary and Early Childhood Education (license), Master's degrees in Teaching (secondary license), Curriculum and Instruction, Special Education (Functional and Adaptive) and a Doctorate of Education. Active duty military spouses are also eligible for our military discount of $250 per credit hour for undergraduate programs.
Military spouses pursuing careers that require a licensure or certification may be eligible for the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Spouse Education and Career Opportunities (SECO) program.
Prior to requesting MyCAA financial assistance (FA), military spouses are required to develop an Education and Training (E&T) Plan and upload it to their MyCAA Account for approval by a MyCAA Career and Education Consultant. This package may contain several pages of information.
NOTE: Only courses listed in the spouse’s Education & Training (E&T) plan will be approved for MyCAA funding. Be sure to list a range of possible “elective” courses that meet academic requirements. Once approved, spouses cannot add additional courses to their plan.

NOTE: Once spouses have uploaded their plan into their MyCAA Account, a MyCAA Career and Education Consultant will review and approve the E&T Plan to confirm it:
Spouses will receive a notice in their MyCAA Account Message Box when their plan is approved. Approval can take up to 14 calendar days. Remember to request MyCAA financial assistance (FA) on a course-by-course basis after the E&T plan is approved and course start/end dates are known.
