Southwestern Michigan College is committed to offering a high-quality academic experience for a fraction of the cost of most universities.

Students can complete the first two years of nearly any bachelor's degree or earn a degree in in-demand fields like nursing, construction robotics and more.

SMC's 240-acre Dowagiac campus is safe, beautiful and always busy with activity. Students can participate in intramural sports, clubs and the many events that take place year-round.

Students who live on campus enjoy their own private bedrooms in apartment-style suites.

The renovated Niles Campus offers many of the same programs as the Dowagiac campus in addition to FlexForward evening and online-hybrid programs designed for working adults.
