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.

Payment Plans

Southwestern offers three payment plans for fall and spring semesters to help students manage their university expenses. Classes taken during the summer require full payment at the time of registration for each module.

PLAN I — CASH

When the total charges for a semester are paid on registration day, a discount of 3% is given on the cash paid for tuition, room, and board.  (Before this discount is calculated, all scholarships, loans, grants, awards, other discounts, and university aid funds are subtracted.) Students using this plan must bring with them at registration time the full amount of the package plan, plus miscellaneous charges such as music lessons and private room fee. A cash discount is not given on post-baccalaureate student, ADP, or other discounted programs. This discount does not apply to payments made by credit or debit card.

PLAN II — FOUR-PAYMENT SEMESTER AGREEMENT

This plan is a four-payment contract with the University. The registration fee, due in July, is 60% of semester charges, and financial aid can be applied toward this requirement. The remaining balance will be divided equally over four payments due the 10th of each month, as follows:

Fall Semester

     

July Registration fee, minimum of 60% of semester charges


August 10 First payment


September 10 Second payment

November 10 Final payment

Spring Semester


December Registration fee, minimum of 60% of semester charges
