Upcoming Events at SWIC

High School Visit Day, Friday, January 24, 2020 from 9 AM to Noon

This year we are introducing a slightly new format for this event that allows students more opportunities to explore programs at SWIC.  Before moving into two back to back breakout sessions of their choosing, students will have the opportunity to browse SWIC academic programs and meet faculty in a college fair style set-up exhibition.  Students can register to attend or find more info online. We welcome individual students, school  groups, or families at this event.

St. Louis Metro East Baccalaureate College Fair, Sunday, February 23, 2020 from 1:30 to 3:30 PM

Local families are invited to browse approximately 100 local, state, and national colleges and universities, as well as attend workshops on financial aid or transferring from community college to a four year university. Students can make the most of their time at the fair by signing up for a Strive Scan barcode in advance to collect college rep information in seconds. More information and a list of colleges is available at SWIC.edu.
