Bridge to SWU is a partnership between select two-year colleges and Southern Wesleyan University with the intent to enhance the enrollment process for transfer students by providing support and services which facilitate a successful transition to SWU.
Students who complete any associates degree at a partnering two-year college will be guaranteed admission to SWU upon successfully completing all steps for enrollment, including meeting the established admissions requirements. While admissions is guaranteed, courses will be evaluated for transfer credit and applicability to the intended SWU major.
