Invest in Yourself.

 Did you know that the typical college graduate earns between 70-80% more than a typical high-school graduate, and those with advance degrees earn two to three times as much as high-school graduates?  An investment in yourself is a valuable one. 

At SMWC, our Financial Aid staff is here to help you find the resources you need to finance your education.  We offer several institutional scholarships and the Corporate Connections discount...making your educational goals attainable!

Financial Aid is Available!

95% of our part-time and full-time students are eligible to receive financial aid benefits. We awarded over $4 million dollars in institutional aid last year. Don't miss out...obtaining a private college education can be affordable!

To learn about financing a private college education please see our Financial Aid FAQs.
