Student Consumer Information

The U.S. Department of Education requires schools receiving Title IV funding to disseminate and report certain information to students. In an effort to assist students in making informed decisions, SOWELA Technical Community College posts a vast amount of student consumer information online. The information has been compiled and listed on this page for the ease of our students both current and prospective.
