    The mission of Southwestern Michigan College is to serve our community by providing affordable local access to high quality postsecondary career preparation and college education including the total college life experience.

    At Southwestern Michigan College we have high quality transfer courses and curricula for students who wish to pursue their first two years of a four-year degree at SMC before transferring to a four-year college or university. Plus, SMC is committed to offering the highest quality academic experience at less than half the cost of most four-year colleges and universities. We also offer unparalleled occupational skills training in numerous technical, business, and health-care fields geared toward preparing students for high-wage, high-skill, and high-demand occupations. We offer small class sizes, ensuring you will receive significant personalized attention from your instructors.

    At SMC we have campuses conveniently located in Dowagiac and Niles - close to home and work. Our Dowagiac campus has on-campus housing that offers private, two- and four-bedroom, fully-furnished suites. We also have academic support services that offer assistance every step of the way from the time you apply for admission to SMC to the completion of your degree and beyond.
