Early Admission Program

The Outreach office conducts an Early Admission Program (EAP) for all interested high school seniors. The program allows high school seniors and adult schools to apply online, be placed into mathematics and English, view the online orientation and register for fall semester before continuing SWC students in July. EAP prepares high school seniors for the transition from high school to college.
