About the Southwest Regional Location
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 on 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, 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.
