About Southwest College Institute for the Deaf

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. By joining the Adventure Club, one of the student organizations at SWCID, you can explore the West Texas wilderness while learning camping and survival techniques.

Because of its goal to serve hearing-impaired students, SWCID’s classes are taught in American Sign Language. Its academic programs are also uniquely geared toward the hard of hearing: the English Language Program, for example, is a full-time instructional course that teaches English as a second language to deaf students.

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
* Paraprofessional in Deaf Education

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.
