Academic Support Courses

Southwestern College has designed two academic support courses, one of which serves to mentor students on academic probation (ESKL080); the other supports students who apply to the college with less than minimum admissions requirements and have been conditionally admitted to Southwestern College by the Conditional Admittance Committee (ESKL 079).
