3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think the tuition is expensive. I didn't pay as much for California as I did here. I don't qualify for financial aide and therefore have to pay for my courses out-of-the-piggy-bank. It's difficult but as long as I get my education I'm fine with price.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I do not qualify for financial aid, however the tuition here is so affordable that I have been able to pay as I go on a payment plan. Even though tuition is low you get a lot of bang for your buck at this college. Class sizes are very small and professors know their students by name. I have been able to work with professors outside of class both through science club and research projects. Even though this is a community college in a semi small town the professors make it a great experience.

Tuition & Financial Aid: It is worth the time here in the college. Classes are cheap.

Tuition & Financial Aid: As for me, the school's tuition is the best, but that's because I get financial aid and everything is being paid. Since the tuition is a small amount of money compared to other schools, I do think it is worth what we are paying. I am getting the basic things I need to know in order to get my credits so I am doing fine with that. The school provides with all the necessary and basic things that we, as students, need. We really are getting what we are paying. If we want better things and a higher education then I guess we should just pay more.

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's quite easy. There are not millions of forms to fill out, and though I am a full-time student, I had have my financial aid leftover after all my tuition and books were paid. This also included the two winter session classes I took as well.

One of the main reasons people choose AWC is for the affordable tuition. Arizona residents age 59-and-under pay only $70 per credit. Non-Arizona residents age 59-and-under pay $80 per credit; however, the higher the credits go, tuition gets much more expensive for non-Arizona residents ($3,420 for 12 credits as opposed to $840 for Arizona residents). At Arizona Western College, financial aid is available for those who qualify, and it's granted according to the student's need, which is the difference between the cost of attending college and the Expected Family Contribution (EFC). There are many scholarship opportunities at Arizona Western College, with a multitude of leadership programs, too. There are also different scholarships offered by the AWC Foundation.

Finally, AWC (through its Career Development office) presents many job opportunities that help students make extra money. Certain jobs have some special benefits, too. By becoming a resident assistant (RA), for instance, students get free housing including a meal plan, and lab aides who work at the computer lab get free printing.
