Financial Aid

Many of our learners will qualify for federal financial aid, which includes student loans and grants.

Military Tuition Assistance

Southwestern College offers a tuition discount for active duty personnel and their spouses, Guard members, Reservists and DOD civilians/contractors. Additionally, we can help coordinate TA and VA education benefits.

Billing & Payment Options

Our billing office can help you coordinate employer tuition reimbursement, employer direct bill, and even set up payment plans if you are paying your tuition out of your own pocket.

Book Vouchers

There are three types of book vouchers available to learners. The vouchers can cover the cost of textbooks until your financial aid, VA benefits, or employer tuition assistance is available.


We offer scholarships for new undergraduate learners at Southwestern College Professional Studies. As we hear about other scholarships that may be available to learners, we will post them here.

  • New Learner Scholarship
  • Candyce Duggan Book Grant – Each semester, we will award a book grant to one or two learners enrolled in Composition I at Southwestern College Professional Studies. The grant will cover the cost of the required textbooks for Composition I, which are the same textbooks used for Composition II. Learners enrolled in the course two weeks before the start of class are automatically entered to receive the grant. The Candyce Duggan Book Grant has been made possible by Bedford/St. Martins, publisher, and by company representative, Damon Morris.
  • Federal, State of Kansas, & Southwestern College Scholarships & Grants
