Specific Major – Having a specific major will help you set a time goal on when you will finish your education. Without this you could get into some dangers of exceeding the credit hours that most college's allow.

The K.E.Y.S Program – Without this program a lot of students would not make it in college, as they help you stay focused on your goal.
They help guide you to your future in higher education, whether it is just for an associates or on to transfer to a university.
They help the first generation, low-income, and disability students to achieve their ultimate goals of education.
Keep up the great work in helping students find their way.

My Academic Experience – My academic experience this far has been a very rewarding one, as I have discovered that the instuctors here care about each and every student. They believe in the ability of each student to succeed. They help you do that in pointing you to the directions to go whether it is meeting with them personnally, or using the tutoring center that is on campus. The instuctors follow your progress very carefully, so you do not get let behind.
I would come to this college again as it has made a big impact on my higher education. As this institution has helped me get past my fears of giving up, and I stuck with it, and now I am so close to graduating that I can not believe that I did it.
Thank you Arizona Western College for believing in me when I did not.

Friendly and Helpful, Sometimes Incompetent – I enjoy AWC. It has a friendly we're-all-a-family appeal to it and most of the students and faculty are kind to each other. In general, AWC has high education standards. The "campus spirit" is also alive and well. However, my only complaint is that one or two of the employees, as with any college, don't seem to really know their stuff. As far the professors themselves are concerned, they're knowledgable and usually amiable. In fact, in the entirety of my time at AWC, I only met one professor whom I felt was unfit to be teaching. I actually feel blessed that I've had such a memorable time here. I will look back with fondness.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Ask for All the Help You Need – I believe Arizona Western College tuition and financial aid is fair. Classes and education provided is really helpful. I've learn to ask any questions I have because you never know what a difference it makes. Try and finish everything before time and review all you do.

I Appreciate Our Technology Services – My school has many computers you can utilize anytime you want. It is so easy to get a computer and print out your homework in under 5 minutes. Teachers are constantly updating BlackBoard. A few weeks ago, our BlackBoard went down because of some technical errors but our technogical team took action immediately. They worked all night long non-stop trying to fix it and the next morning, BlackBoard was back up and running. It was wonderful!

Tuition & Financial Aid:
I've Never Loved School as Much as I Do Now – I absolutely LOVE my school! I came in not knowing a thing about college but my school's website is self-explainatory. Tuitions, fees, financial aid, scholarships....everything is stated within the website. I believe I receieved more than I bargained for because my teachers have made my education simple and fun. They are all very professional and they are always willing to lend you a hand on everything.

Diversity at AWC – Much of our student body consist of hispanics just because of location especially being close to the border. Yet there are several african americans and alot of white people as well. Much diversity comes from peoples style and race and cultural background at AWC.

Much of what is offered here are the basic components to get your pre equisites for a university transfer. It is just like high school except you have more freedom to do your own choices with this education either than hgh school. Not much work is given unless its math or english classes more of the basic needs.

College Life – So far I feel AWC is'nt a well school to go to just because they do not offer a variety of coarses one mit one to take. Don't get me wrong it's a cheap school with the basic needs one needs for a transfer to a university but if one wants to accomplish more and make more I would move to a higher level of education if can.

There are a variety of people at my school. There are kids straight out of high school who grew up in the area. There are a lot of middle aged people who are going back to school. There are people from other areas who are here on scholarships for sports. I think most people are there with a goal to get their education and get a career that they can enjoy.

I was a psychology major. Our school caters more to the sciences and to the nursing program on campus. There are more scholarships available for those majors and more sections of classes. I found it very difficult to get the schedule that I wanted because there were only a few professors teaching the core classes. For instance one of my core classes only got taught once every other semester and only 2 classes were offered. One class took 30 students and the other 8. So only 38 students could get into this class if you don't get in then getting your degree is delayed for a another year. Luckily I got on the waiting list and I was able to get into the class but I heard from others who could not get into this class. Other than that I had no problems. I thought the professors were awesome and they were very well versed in the topics they were teaching and they made real world application to the subject that was being taught.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Aid Process – I get financial aid and I think that the process is fair. I don't really like that financial aid will only pay for 80 credits so if you change your major of something in the middle you may not get aid for the whole period you are trying to get your degree. But I understand why this rule exists, it is so people do not abuse the aid they are getting. I haven't really had any problems with aid, the forms are fairly simple and if you need help filling them out you can go to a counselor

There is about anything you will need to succeed but you have to get out their and go for it cause there is no one that will help if ou dont choose.

Class Accessability – I really like that there are 4 different locations in which diferent classes are offer. I personally like that they give the same involvement in the classes at this school.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The school's tuition can be easily covered with the financial aid I received and I am surprised of the education I have received. The process was very simple, however I found that I have to be cautions with the information I was putting in.

the student body is very diverse. although the population of the city is mainly Hispanic, the school takes transfer students from different parts of the nation. there are a vast number of facilities for the handicapped, and it is easy to express yourself without receiving criticism from other student

AWC Computer Network – over all i am pleased with the computer network at Arizona western college. The fact that the computer network is linked with NAU gives me more assurance about the network's reliability. i seldom have any errors accessing my account through the computer lab, i have never reached my printing limit and there is always helpful staff available to help

Secondary Education Major – My school is great with helping me achieve my goals. I am in a cohort with other education majors and it allows me to better communicate with them. We all are in the same classes and have similar things in common. I love AWC!

Solar Panels – My school is the first school to have solar panel parking for our vehicles. The school was able to receive a grant to pay for it.I heard last week at school that on opening day of this big event they invited president to it.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
