  • General Information
    About Southwest Collegiate Institute for the Deaf

    SWCID was established by the Board of Trustees of the Howard County Junior College District (HCJCD) on November 6, 1979, following completion of a feasibility study conducted by Howard College with the financial support of the Texas Education Agency. The study indicated a significant need for a post-secondary institution to provide higher education and career training for the deaf. The first classes at SWCID were offered in 1980; and on May 14, 1981, the Governor of Texas signed into law the bill (Chapter 131, VTCA, Education Code) which established SWCID as a state-supported institution within the Howard County Junior College District.

    Institutional statistical data was gathered from the U.S. Department of Education - Institute of Education Sciences, National Center for Education Statistics, 2009-2010.
