SWC Cares

Connecting You With Solutions

If you are a student in need of basic assistance — food, housing, transportation, textbooks, technology or other resources — SWC Cares is here to support you.

SWC Cares is a campus-wide initiative that centralizes the many resources at SWC. A number of programs are available that can help you in school and at home so you can thrive in the classroom.

Looking for help? No problem — fill out the Basic Needs Request form so we can get the right support to you. Need tech help? Even a new computer? Please complete the Technology Loan Request form.*

Or, if you’re looking to partner in providing these services to our students, join many of your colleagues and sign up for Jaguars Give.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the SWC Cares Grant is open to providing financial assistance for normal, everyday expenses that are ongoing, as well as those as a result of an emergency. Students must be enrolled in the current and/or upcoming semester to apply. Funds are limited and based on current funding availability.
