Learning, Doing, Growing

Southwestern Adventist University believes in the development of the whole person: body, mind and spirit.

Opportunities Abound

We are more concerned with the quality of our many small programs than the development of bigger ones. As such, the educational focus is personal, and students have many opportunities to flourish.

An International Flavor

With students from more than two dozen countries, Southwestern offers the young person an opportunity to meet and interact while learning how the rest of the world lives.

Financial Aid

Work Study

Eligibility for the following programs is based upon the results of the FAFSA. These programs are designed to give students work opportunities to help with University expenses and obtain experience that will complement each recipient's educational program or career goals. Students indicate on their FAFSA if they want to be considered for a work-study award. Funds are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to students who have remaining eligibility for additional aid they may receive during the school year. Southwestern awards approximately $2,500 for the year. Students receive the portion of their award that is actually earned through their work-study job. 

Students may learn more about student employment by contacting Campus Services at 800-433-2240  ext. 6240 or 817-202-6240.
