2011-12 Financials

In accordance with the Illinois community college system funding formulas, Southwestern Illinois College financial support comes from three primary sources: tuition and fees; enrollment-based state funding; and local property taxes. Complementary income is generated through federal, state and local grants, and philanthropic donations through the SWIC Foundation. All funds are dedicated to furthering the core mission of instruction, as every dollar invested in a community college yields a three-fold regional return on investment.
