Student Rally Today!

got classes?

The administration of SWC has decided that roughly 430 classes will be cut from the Spring ‘10 schedule. This reduction is nearly 25% of the course offerings and means that throughout the catalogue; almost 1 out of every 4 classes will not be offered for the students who are nearing graduation or transfer.

Most of the UC and CSU schools have begun closing their doors to new and transfer students due to the economic crisis. This limited availability of SWC courses may cause many students to wait another year or more beyond their desired transfer date and eliminate their ability to obtain their goals on time.

On October 14th, 2009, numerous students spoke out against these cuts; their voices were not heard. The Governing Board of SWC voted against holding a special meeting to discuss alternatives to these class cuts to better serve the students of Southwestern College.


Join us in rallying against these class cuts and finally
be heard!
