What Students Are Saying

Arizona Western College is one of the highest Community Colleges, known if Yuma Arizona.
Veronica from Yuma, AZ
AWC is a good community college for a variety of reasons, to include several good associate degrees and its close association with NAU. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate AWC as an 8, with its only major failing being a shortfall of science teachers. The campus is beautiful and well organized, and the school staff is very helpful in trying to support the students.
