As an international student, before attending Southwestern you must be prepared to pay all educational and living expenses. Careful planning will help make your college experience a successful one.  Work permits are only granted under the permission of the United States Office of Immigration.  Federal and State financial assistance is not available for international students; however, some students may be eligible for scholarships through SWCC's music and athletic programs.

Class space will not be held if payments are not received in SWCC's business office by payment due dates. Failure to pay by the deadlines will result in the cancellation of your registration process and the Immigrations Office will be notified that you are no longer enrolled. Immigration and Nationalization Regulations require that international students on an F-1 visa must be enrolled full-time (12 credit hours or more).
