    Contact your Student Success Advisor to review your readiness for English and math. There are several options to help inform your placement without having to take a test!

  • Contact your program advisor.
    When you complete the application, you will be assigned to a faculty member who will advise you on course selection, timing and sequence. This relationship is critical for your success. Program advisors can be viewed in your student account information in the Student Information System (SIS-MYSouthwest) once your application is complete.

After you submit your application, your confirmation page will provide important information about enrollment access. A "New Student Hold" is placed on all new applicants. New students must schedule an advising session with a Student Success Advisor before the hold is removed and enrollment access granted.
