The transition from high school to college can be a bit overwhelming!
The Outreach office conducts an Early Admission Program (EAP) for all interested high school seniors. The program allows high school seniors to apply online, take the assessment, view the online orientation and receive priority register.
Graduating seniors attending school in the Sweetwater Union High School District (SUHSD) can fulfill the Early Admission process. College Peer Ambassadors are assigned to each of the high schools in the SUHSD. The Peer Ambassadors assists seniors with completing the EAP process as well as the financial aid. Special months have been set aside for students to complete their process.
The earlier you apply, the sooner we can provide information via email of upcoming events.
We hope you'll find the process easy and convenient. Online application and information links give you what you need when you need it. We also have professional peer Ambassadors and staff who want to assist you along the way.
Just follow these simple guidelines and you will be on your way to becoming a student at Southwestern College.
