As far back as 1905, Western Michigan University has offered extension courses in southwest Michigan, and WMU-Southwest continues that tradition today. WMU-Southwest is located at the entrance of Lake Michigan College's Napier Avenue campus in Benton Harbor. The partnership between Western Michigan University and Lake Michigan College (LMC) allows LMC's students to make a seamless transition into junior and senior level courses at WMU-Southwest.
At WMU-Southwest, our students are our priority. Our staff is here to help you navigate through the academic waters and reach your professional and educational goals.
At WMU-Southwest, students have the unique flexibility of starting a degree program at LMC and finishing it at WMU. Students can attend LMC for the first two years to obtain an associate's degree, complete their bachelor's degree at WMU-Southwest, and enroll in and complete a WMU graduate degree, all in one location.
WMU-Southwest offers continuing education opportunities, including a variety of undergraduate and graduate degree programs, in the fields of business, education, engineering, and nursing. Classes are scheduled at convenient times, including nights and weekends, and are tailored to meet the needs of working adults.
