Southwestern Christian College (SWCC) is currently offering a scholarship to Kaufman County residents. 

The “Local Incentive Plan” gives eligible students an opportunity to receive anywhere from $2,000 to a full scholarship just for agreeing to commute to school. Under this incentive, students enrolled in the plan can receive an associate degree for very little to no cost.

The deadline to apply for this offer is Friday, June 21. Students must complete application for admission and financial aid to be considered. Online applications are available at and

This incentive is being led by college president Dr. E.D. Seamster, Jr.

“I would like to build a stronger partnership with members of the community,” Seamster said. “I believe that if you better prepare the people around you, it’s possible to have a more qualified, skilled workforce. Dr. Seamster believes that this is a great opportunity for those wishing to launch their educational dreams and build a firm foundation for the future.”

Interested persons are welcome to visit the campus anytime next week from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. to speak to an admissions recruiter in the W. Timothy Hunt Science Building, 200 Bowser Cirle, Terrell, Texas 75160. Financial aid assistance will be given onsite as well.

Southwestern Christian College is fully accredited with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. SWCC was founded in Fort Worth, Texas by G.P. Bowser in 1948, moving to its current location in 1949. SWCC is the only historically black college or university among the churches of Christ.
