Destination 225

Hi, I recently graduated from Auburn University in December of 2022. Am I allowed to apply for the Destination 225-collegiate pathway program?

Here are the four pathways of Destination 225: 


The program offers four different pathways for eligible applicants:

  • Cadet Pathway – a four-year program based in Phoenix for candidates with no previous flying experience.
  • University Pathway – for those currently studying for an aviation degree at one of the program’s seven partner universities.
  • Military Pathway – for those looking to make the transition from military to commercial aviation.
  • Employee Pathway – for existing Southwest Airlines staff members looking for a career change.

I would head to this link and apply and see where that takes you.


Hope that helps and good luck!!!!
