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 submited in a timely manner as payment arrangements are required prior to the start of class.

Employer Reimbursement.  Many companies offer tuition reimbursement plans for their employees. Southwestern College can bill your company directly if this benefit is available to you. 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 who we send the invoice to. If for any reason your employer does not pay for the tuition and fee charges, the student is responsible for full payment.

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. For more information regarding the financial aid process, policies, eligibility requirements, and announcements 

VA and Tuition Assistance  Southwestern College gladly assists our service members and veterans in processing their tuition assistance and veteran's benefits.  

Payment Plan   For those who are unable to pay tuition in full prior to class start date, Southwestern offers a payment plan option.  A  $15/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. (Aug‐Dec for Fall, Jan‐May for Spring, and May‐Jul for Summer).  Students can activate the payment pay through Self-Service.

Cancellation of Financial Aid
When students withdraw from college, a calculation is made of "earned" and "unearned" federal aid.  This calculation is required by federal regulation.  Earned aid is kept on the student's account and unearned aid is returned to the Department of Education.  Unearned aid is returned first to loans and in this order: unsubsidized loans, subsidized loans, Perkins loans, PLUS loans.  Any remaining unearned aid is then returned to Pell grant, SEOG, and other Title IV programs.
Southwestern aid is returned according to the cancellation of charges policies.
For state and other aid, all funds are usable until the student's account balance reaches zero. Any excess is returned to the place where it originated.
