Financial Aid



In April of 2012 President Obama signed Executive Order 13607 which establishes the Principles of Excellence for Educational Institutions Serving Service Members, Veterans, Spouses and Other Family Members. These principles have been established to provide additional consumer protection for our country’s service men and women.

At Southwestern Community College, we understand that completing a college degree is important to you. We are committed to providing high quality and affordable education to you, your spouse and your college-aged children. Veterans and other eligible individuals may enroll in any approved education program they choose, if they meet the school’s requirements for admission.

Recipients of veterans’ benefits must submit official transcripts of all post secondary coursework attempted before they can receive V.A. benefits. They are also urged to submit official transcripts of any educational work completed through the armed services. Veterans will not be eligible to receive V.A. benefits until all post secondary transcripts are submitted.
