For Prospective Students
Early Action and Regular Decision Students
Students applying under the Early Action or Regular Decision plan who plan to apply for need-based aid will need to submit a FAFSA by March 1. Financial aid award letters will be sent to admitted students on a rolling basis beginning in mid-February.
Transfer students must first work with the Admissions Office to gain admission to Southwestern University before acquiring a Financial Aid Package. The application process is the same as for New Students. The required form for applying for need-based financial aid at Southwestern University is the FAFSA and is due by May 15 for Fall Transfers and Dec 1 for Spring Transfers.
Southwestern provides only merit-based academic scholarships to international students. A student will be eligible for academic scholarship consideration upon completing an admission application. In order to be considered for admission, international students must submit a Certification of Finances form and provide proof of funds equal to the cost of attendance at Southwestern. Southwestern does not provide need-based financial aid for international students.
