Start Dates / Information Sessions

When you download the attached Program Start Dates, you will find the upcoming start dates for all SouthWest Skill Center programs. This will help you in planning for completing your admission process. Please be advised that starting dates are subject to change without notice, so it is very important for you to work with your advisor to make sure you are submitting all the required items on time. swsc.advisor@estrellamountain.edu

All Financial Aid eligible programs (600 clock hours or more) as listed below, require the completed Admission Packets to be turned in 3 weeks before the start date. If you are paying for the program without Financial Aid, packets can be turned in up to 2 weeks prior to the start date. A timeline is attached to help you determine when to start the admission process, but it can take up to 14 weeks to meet all of the requirements for some programs. This means that if you are receiving Financial Aid, you should start the process at least 16 weeks before the start date.
