Thank you for choosing Southwestern College to help you achieve your educational goals. Whether you are a new or returning student, you will see that Southwestern has many paths for you to pursue in accomplishing your short- and long-term academic objectives.

If you are new to Southwestern College, or haven’t been here for a while, we encourage you to click on the “Explore, Apply, Register” box in either the credit or noncredit square.

Click on the arrow at the bottom of each box to see what that means.

If you have already taken classes before, head straight to the “Apply • Register” box in either the credit or noncredit square, and it will take you to WebAdvisor to move you along your path.
