Schedule of Classes

The Schedule of Classes provides detailed information on classes offered at Southwestern Michigan College.

SMC offers both traditional in-class and online-hybrid (in-class/online mixed delivery) courses. Online-hybrid courses typically meet in the evenings once or twice a month while the rest of the learning is done online.

A note about online courses

To succeed in a hybrid course, you must be comfortable using computers and learning new software packages. It is hard to keep up in an online course if you are not reasonably skilled at using a web browser and email communication.

Please read our Online Classes page for self-assessment questions to help you determine whether or not online learning is a good fit for you, as well as for technology requirements and other insights into online classes.

The Online Catalog is a comprehensive resource with program guides, course descriptions, student services and the student handbook. It is not meant to replace contact with faculty and staff who are happy to meet with you to discuss academic and career possibilities, course selections, academic concerns and to answer questions.

SMC provides access to older catalogs and course descriptions, which are primarily used by administrators at other institutions to evaluate the transcripts of our students. You can find these older catalogs and course descriptions under Helpful Links. The course descriptions listed represent courses that may be offered or have been offered in the past at Southwestern Michigan College.

Note: The PDF catalogs made available through this website are for informational purposes only. The information is not to be considered as an irrevocable contract between the student and the College. The College reserves the right to change all or any part of these catalogs at any time without notice; this includes graduation requirements, tuition and other charges, curriculum, course structure and content and other matters within its control.
