Congratulations! You have been accepted to Southwestern and may be wondering what comes next. This page is designed to give you the information you need to complete the process of becoming a Southwestern student. The first thing on your list is to complete academic advising and registration.
Academic Advising and Registration
For Academic Advising, please contact the Office of Admissions at 817.923.1921 x2700, and an admissions ambassador will be happy to assist you in setting up your class schedule. Academic Advising and Registration for International Students will take place at the International Student Orientation.
New Student Orientation
All new students at the Fort Worth Campus are required to attend New Student Orientation. During orientation you will have the opportunity to meet Southwestern faculty and staff, get to know other students, and accomplish many of the tasks that will help you make the transition to a Southwestern student. At orientation you will receive information about your student ID card, parking decals, payment arrangements, and campus technology. For more information about the dates and schedule for orientation, click here.

Why Student Housing?
- Location. Student housing places residents a short distance from student facilities on campus (i.e., classrooms, library, student center, business office, etc.). The majority of housing units are located within 4 blocks of the seminary. The longest drive is 1.1 miles to the campus (Garrett Manor).
- Quality and Service. Student housing is maintained by an in-house maintenance and landscaping team. All units are serviced and cleaned prior to arrival. After-hour emergency maintenance is addressed by an on-call maintenance representative.
- Community. Student housing offers tenants the opportunity to build lasting friendships that will enrich their educational experience and encourage future ministry.
- Economy. Student housing typically runs 15-25% less than comparable facilities in the area. Further, the convenience of location virtually eliminates the cost of commuting.
- Safety. In addition to attentive, caring neighbors, the student housing is patrolled 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year by a highly trained security team. Our campus security force works in concert with the FWPD and brings an added layer of protection for our residents unavailable at most apartment complexes.
