Many aspects of your Southwest University El Paso experience will be very similar to what you would expect at any college.

You will attend classes, study, complete assignments, and take tests. When you become a Southwest University student, the faculty and staff immediately focus on helping you. Before you even start, you will attend an orientation to get you involved in everything our institution has to offer.

Now you know what you can expect from us… quality learning and a strong support system to help you get and stay on track. But we can not do it alone.

That is why we ask for your commitment in return. A commitment to work hard, to stay focused and to ask for help when you need it. Certainly attending school is not easy. But with your commitment Southwest University El Paso makes it possible.
