Southwestern College




1: Apply to Southwestern College to receive a Student Identification (ID). Your student ID is what you receive when you are a current student; it opens a SWC account where the CTE office can transfer your CTE Transitions Certificate(s) as college credit. This will allow you to view your course on your transcript. So this is a vital step!

To apply you must complete an SWC E-Application. You may do this on your home computer or SWC computers provided for you at the Admissions office in the Chula Vista campus


2: Wait at least 48 hours for your SWC application to be processed. Please keep track of your application status!

Important Information on SWC Application:

  • You may still turn in your CTE Transitions Certificate to the CTE Office even through no student ID for the next 48 hours.
  • Please keep track of your application status. The CTE office will keep check of your application progresses and will notify when your student ID is received but it is better keep track of the process, especially if your application is about to expire!

IMPORTANT: This Step needs to be completed before you turn in your 2-sided CTE Transitions Certificate(s).
