3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Everything that I'm paying and have payed for my school's tuition has been worth it, because I'm learning and have learned in my classes although there are teachers who don't know how to teach, good thing I was able to pass with straight A's this passed semester because I had some great teachers.
The Financial Aid process is great because it arrives to me just exactly when I start needing money to pay for my books and transportation, two weeks after starting school. I think its great that if students are absent more than three times during the first two weeks of school their financial aid would get cut unless they have a good reason to tell the financial aid why they were absent.

Campus Resources: The internet in the dorms is very poor and thats were we spend most of our time at.The tutors for certain subjest are available like twice a week and sometimes that clashes with our class times so its not really convinient.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I was a nervious about taking online courses, but it was pretty easy once I got used to it. It was nice not worryng about commuting especially in the winter! I though the workload would be easy, but it was challeging. The experience acquired from online courses help to manage my time appropriately and be responsable to submit my assignments on time since there are no exceptions. Moreover, each assignment is scheduled each week, and communication is based in forum on Blackboard.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: They will help you in the research of finding a job or college to further your intrest. They also have help with resumes and a list of employers that are hiring.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The school has been covenient and is fun to go to and the professors are experienced in the fields of study. They work well with family and work issues.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The campus resources are very student friendly and available with support.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The campus is an older campus, that is being updated with new buildings. The campus does have a great library and computer lab if needed with support.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: My school has a free bus program that allows students to get to and from classes.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: AWC has a riding pass for students need to use the transit system and its within reason for someone budget. Especially when you don't live near the school.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: My major is in Business Administration. I have found that some of my professors will lecture with more hands on. In which. I learn better with more hands on than a professor sit down and try to give a lecture. The work loads are simple but, a little more intense at times.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: With Arizona Western College class registration was easy because the more you as far as credits like 30 - 45 you would get to register earlier. The work the load is manageable for all classes. The curriculum is simple but, within reason.

College Freshman

Online Courses: i have never took an online class here at Arizona western college

3 College Senior

Student Body: My school consists of working class people or families.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The classes offered during the summer months are limited.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: I like how they you can get information about the topic but they need to make it more available. However, they do have a lot of career fairs in which you get really good information.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid process and the school's tuition is definitely worth paying because in all the classes I have taken I have never failed a class and have only gotten 2 C's. I have proven myself I am capable of succeeding in so much more than I thought myself capable of.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I was able to have good communication with my teacher and I completely understood the class and what the teacher was trying to explain.

4 College Senior

Career Services: In my classes i was having trouble with the subject but my school had tutoring sessions. Fortunately they also have the library where i can study too and do my homework in a quiet environment.
My school also has the bookstore where you can sell or buy books for the classes, now there doing rentals so now you can rent a book and dont need to spend as much!

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: There's always computrs available in the computer lab. I also usually carry my laptop with me since I can use the wifi from anywhere around campus. Printing on campus is excellent since it's free and are provided with a good quota for the semester.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I'm currently only taking my prerequisites for the nursing program and the classes seem fair academic wise, but I can imagine how hard they are going to get once I'm in the program.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: My college offers Writing and Math Lab and they are all free. If anyone is struggling with either math or writing, they can always find a math tutor that is ready to help. Even though the equipment in computer lab are quite old, all the typical software like Microsoft Office is available. More advance software like Maple 16, Matlab, and Visual Basic are also available.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I would have given it an A if there were more classes to choose from. Teachers are limited to the few if you're pursuing Engineering and Science degrees. However, the school is doing its best to meet student's demand. For example, this fall semester, there were only two Chemistry 151 classes but they were all full with 30+ students on the wait list. In the end, they managed to squeeze in 2 more Chemistry 151 classes. They even try to add more classes like Math after classes had begin.

Academic Experience: The classes themselves are quite enlightening. The professors seem enthusiastic about what they are teaching, despite the fact that they are greatly unappreciated by the college. I have no complains about the teachers, but rather they terribly unorganized administration of Arizona Western College. Half of the workers in the main office don't know of basic things such as building names, important locations, or even where specific offices are located. Other than the teachers, the staff is completely incompetent.

1 College Junior

Academic Experience: As a Biology major, getting all of the credits I need to transfer is a hassle. I have to stay an extra year, not because I am doing poorly, but because Arizona Western College's class system leaves much to be desired. One of the classes I need for my transfer degree doesn't exist anymore, so I have to open a petition to have it created again. There is only one Biology II class this semester with 24 open slots. The classes themselves are informative, if you can actually manage to get into them.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: So far, I have only take one education class. Most of the classes I have take are generals. But the one educational class I took was amazing. The first day of the class the teacher told us that by the end of the semester we would of realized if we wanted to become teachers or not. She was totally right, at the end of the semester I knew, and was convinced that Teaching is exactly what I want.

There are many things that make AWC an outstanding college. The small size of the classes allows the instructor to pay attention to everyone, knowing each student by his or her name. The flexibility of class schedules allows students to adjust their extracurricular activities with their school time tables. The affordable tuition allows students to save money while preparing to transfer to a four-year university. Plus, the faculty members are always ready to serve the students. Students are assigned an adviser to help them make important decisions on their academic journey. You can get connected with your laptop to the campus Wi-Fi from the dorms, the cafeteria, Starbucks, or the library. Staying in the college dorms keeps you close to everything. The library offers study rooms of different sizes that you can book for your academic needs. The Student Success Center offers free tutoring in different subjects, as well.

Attending AWC gives you the chance to embrace a new community. Through the diverse nationalities of the international students attending the college, AWC opens the door to a global community and provides the opportunity to discover different cultures. You can join one or more of the many student clubs, such as the Science Club, the Radiologic Technology Club, the Rotaract Club, and the I Team (international team), just to name a few. Besides these individual clubs and organizations, faculty-supervised programs (such as the Matador Ambassador program, the Honors program, Phi Theta Kappa, and the Student Government Association) provide leadership and connection opportunities and also a chance to get scholarships.
