Southwestern Michigan College

Southwestern Michigan College is a small college with big opportunities. 

With degrees that serve as launch points to study at top universities, a feature-packed Student Activity Center, thriving student life, and some of the nicest residence halls in the state, Southwestern Michigan College offers the full college experience for a fraction of the cost.  

SMC was founded in 1964 on the principle of knowledge for all—the idea that everyone should have access to quality education.

Since that time, SMC continues to pursue excellence in academic quality and the student experience, all while providing a personal touch and keeping costs low. 

Students from all walks of life have come to SMC to pursue their dreams. We are proud to be the school of choice for valedictorians, athletes, local pageant queens, science prodigies, rising stage talent, and everyone in between—all with the common goal of working towards a brighter future.
