Let Southwestern College guide you on your pathway to success. More than 70% of our students qualify for free tuition!
How does free tuition work?
Most Southwestern College students qualify for the Board of Governors (BOG) Fee Waiver that pays for the enrollment fees of qualified students. Students are still responsible for other fees and costs like books and parking passes. Programs like Federal Work Study and EOPS may help cover those costs.
Do I qualify?
Students are highly encouraged to fill out the FAFSA to determine their BOG and other aid eligibility. Free tuition is based on individual student aid eligibility.
