We Want You Here
Southwestern College is your way into earning the degree or career you’ve always wanted. We are offering a series of grants to get you to begin at Southwestern… come back... or to encourage you to stay here for the spring 2022 semester.
If you’ve never taken classes here, or you missed fall 2021, you can receive a grant as an enrolled student in spring 2022:
- 1 - 5 units = $500
- 6 - 11 units = $1,250
- 12+ units = $2,500
- Students registered with Disability Support Services office enrolled in 6+ units = $2,500
When is the disbursement?
- April 4, 2022 for full-semester classes
- May 2, 2022 for fast-track classes
Funds will be disbursed through BankMobile.
A unique link to access the funds will be mailed to your MySWC email.
Did you attend fall 2021 classes?
We want to assist you with school-related expenses. Students who enrolled in fall 2021 can receive a grant of up to $1,500 per student, until the funds are depleted. You will receive an email to your MySWC email with a link to the application to compete for the funds. Be sure to continually monitor your school email.
How do I get the money?
Whether you are a new student, missed a couple semesters or were here in the fall, all students will be required to complete a grant application. The application will be available on the first day of the spring semester, Jan. 31, 2022.
You must be a California resident or an AB 540 student.
Funds can be used for:
- Rent, housing, utility fees
- Car repairs
- Cost of books
- Medical expenses
- Technology (computer devices, internet, etc.)
Did you miss fall 2021?
You will need to re-apply.
