*Per course fee is based on a student taking 4 courses per term over 3 terms, for an annual total of 12 courses. The total number of courses taken will vary depending on program of study. OCCI, Nursing, EMT/Paramedicine, Fire Science, Welding and Agroecology have additional program fees from those above. Please check with the relevant department head regarding specific program fees.
**Housing cost does not include the $250 housing deposit, as well as the $30 per term social fee.
***International students studying in the USA must have their own health insurance coverage. Southwestern does not sell insurance to students. Families are free to purchase a health insurance plan that best fits their budget and personal needs. Student athlete health insurance plans must also cover athletic competition and training.
****This amount will also vary from student to student and is a general estimate for budgeting purposes.
