Going back to college is a big decision—you’re looking for the right environment, the right degree, the right location. And then there’s the cost to consider. At Southern Wesleyan University, we recognize that concern. When you apply for financial aid at Southern Wesleyan, we’ll develop an aid package that meets your particular needs. With little or no upfront expense for many students, your college education is more affordable than you think.

NO HIDDEN FEES
Furthering your education is an investment, but it shouldn’t break the bank. So why do so many schools weigh you down with hidden fees? At Southern Wesleyan University, you don’t have to navigate a list of fees to find out how much your next class will cost. We want your finances to be as easy as possible for you. That is why we designed our flat-rate pricing structure to take stress out of figuring out the true cost of pursuing your degree.
The SWU price per credit hour includes the tuition and fees wrapped up in one cost. While most colleges charge a bunch of extra fees, SWU offers you a flat-rate cost per credit hour with no hidden fees.
