I began my enrollment in August 2014, took a leave in November when my dad passed away and returned in January, I then graduated with my Associate's in Accounting and Business in November 2015. I then continued to pursue my Bachelor's and I will soon graduated in October 2017. The classes are 6 weeks long, after a few terms the student is issued an Apple iPad during their Associate's degree and then during their Bachelor's degree they are issued an Apple MacBook. Needless to say the cost is added onto their tuition, they are attempting to be a "Green" school and save on paper.

Everyone at Southwest University is amazing and will help you in so many ways. So happy I chose this school!
My experience at Southwest University is great, so far. Southwest University is fantastic at helping me have a better future. My colleagues here are good, they help the other students with stuff they may not understand how to do. The professors are very knowledgeable in what subject they are teaching and ususally make is easy for everyone to understand and learn quickly.
