Welcome to the online student financial aid system for Southwestern Community College. You must list Southwestern on your FAFSA to have an account. Complete the FAFSA using our school code, 001857 and we will automatically get your FAFSA. We will notify you at the email you listed on your FAFSA within 1-2 weeks that we have received your FAFSA information and that we have begun processing your information and you can start using this system. We will communicate with you via your SWCC email for all other communications.
DO NOT USE your high school email address for your FAFSA, example: firstname.lastname@example.org. Use a personal email address that you will have access to for next several years . You will need to remember this email address and password combination for your FSA ID, FAFSA, student loans, and other important communications.
For the 2018-2019 academic year, use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to transfer your 2016 tax information in the FAFSA.
For the 2017-2018 academic year, use your 2015 tax information to complete the FAFSA (the DRT is not available for the 2017-2018 academic year).
If you would like the Financial Aid Office to discuss your financial aid with another person like a parent or spouse, you must grant them access via the FERPA (Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act) release form in your SWCCyou portal. FERPA protects students' educational record and other personal information. We are federally required to obtain students' authorization to discuss most financial aid or academic information.
