The partnership between Western Michigan University-Southwest and Lake Michigan College offers students a seamless transition from an associate’s degree to a bachelor’s degree in one location, in close proximity to home and work. In addition, this growing partnership has allowed for the creation of the WMU-Southwest Advantage, a tuition remission program to assist students in taking the next step in their continuing education. Find out more information about the WMU-Southwest Advantage.

Made for working adults

We schedule convenient evening and weekend classes so you can have a job, an education, and a life. Many of our students work full-time and attend classes part-time.

Location, location, location

WMU-Southwest is easy to locate and closer than you think. The WMU-Southwest regional location marks the first time a Michigan university has chosen to build a facility on a community college campus. WMU-Southwest is located at the entrance of Lake Michigan College’s Napier Avenue campus in Benton Harbor. In conjunction with our valued partnership with LMC, the promise of WMU-Southwest is to provide the benefits of Western Michigan University’s main campus in Southwest Michigan.

Transfer Programs

WMU-Southwest offers completion of four undergraduate programs so that in one location you can start your education with LMC and finish it with WMU.
