Financial Aid

Southwest MS Community College is a low-cost, locally controlled institution; therefore, students wishing to attend should not let financial reasons prevent them from doing so. Through one or a combination of aid, all students having need should be able to acquire the necessary funds.

Financial aid is the economic assistance available to help students meet the difference between what they can reasonably be expected to pay and what it will cost to go to college. This economic assistance may be in the form of scholarships, grants, work-study jobs, veteran's assistance, or a combination of any of these programs.
