As part of Howard College’s four-campus system, the Southwest Collegiate Institute for the Deaf seeks to bring an excellent community college experience to hearing-impaired students.
Located in Big Spring, right in the heart of West Texas, the school features some gorgeous natural landmarks, such as Signal Peak and Comanche Trail Park.

In addition to several certificate programs, Southwest Collegiate Institute for the Deaf offers associate’s degrees in the following subjects:
* Computer Information Systems
* Digital Publishing
* Interpreter Training

SWCID provides some financial aid opportunities for its students, including the federal grants and loans, the Texas Grant, and work-study programs. There are also many scholarships available for students enrolled at the Big Spring campus.
