Paying For College

A college education is one of the most significant investments you can make, and financing a private college education is an important family commitment. SUN has been recognized at the national level for its proactive steps to address the challenges of financing post-secondary education, and we invite you to learn more about the opportunities you have to make a SUN education possible.

We believe that an education at Southwestern University will provide you with a world-class education and life-changing experience that you will not find anywhere else. We work to make a SUN education a possibility for every family and encourage you to explore the benefits of studying at SouthWestern University.

Our unique fixed tuition plan enables every family to know the cost of tuition for the entire academic career of their student. So while tuition at other colleges and universities is subject to annual increases, the cost of a SUN education at once set remains constant. Our guaranteed-financial assistance program gives families a measure of certainty in forecasting need-based financial aid packages from year to year.

SUN offers students and families the option of spreading tuition payments over a certain amount of months.
