Academic Flexibility: The only frustration I have to complain about would be a 6:35AM physics class. How anyone could be cognitively aware enough to excel in that class is beyond me, but even then our class managed to push through. Kind of.

Online Courses: Online courses allow me to better pick my own schedule. If I'm swamped in another class, I can do my online class any time later during the week instead of worrying of what I might miss on a certain day. The more lenient schedule also allows me to have more free time, as I can decide to finish my classes early in the morning or as late at night as I want.

Career Services: I don't look to much into them, but from what my friends say, they've been having a good time working with such services.

Overall Experience: I've never had any major issues in courses the professors could not help me with.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I have yet to get my degree, so I'm not sure. However, I imagine it's as valid as any other college's.

Overall Experience: I can't say it's the best of the best, but it gets an education in ya.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I wish this school would offer more classes. I had to be wait listed along with 20 other students for the same class. They need to make some classes more available. I have not transferred any credits but I am aware of what classes will transfer.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: The online courses are very nice when you are busy with other things in life such as a job. They are easy to understand and keep up with assignments. I had very good experiences with my online courses and will be taking more in the future.

3 College Freshman

Career Services: I really haven't used these services yet so I have no comments.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All of my professors so far have been awesome. Some more than others but all were focused on helping me learn. They would help me after class if I was falling behind or confused. The teachers make their expectations known and achievable. They force me to become better as a student and as a person!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I see a lot of career oriented people but that might be because I am a nursing student. The school offers a lot of assistance when it comes to setting up classes and deciding what it the best route.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Being a soon to be nursing student is an amazing experience. The CNA program was my best schooling experience and has helped me to realize that I did choose the right career! I can't wait until I am in the nursing program.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love this school and so many teachers are awesome! They hold me to a high standard and show me what I am capable of. They are always there to help me out and encourage me to do better than what I thought was my best!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: For a small town the college is great!

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I have not had to transfer credits yet, but when I transfer to a Florida University, I plan to transfer my credits. Hopefully it will actually go smoothly. My classes are not very flexible. I always have to rearange my personal schedule to fit in classes I need to take. It stinks when classes I want are cancelled but I need to maintain a specific amount of credits to graduate on time, so I have to take some random class I don't need because there are no classes available that I need at a decent time. Most of the credit transfer is done by you, not by the counselors. And they probably won't take most credits.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Personally I don't prefer online courses, but they help when you have no time to get to class or if a class is unavailable at a good time in your schedule. They are different from traditional classes. They work better for your schedule but they may vary in difficulty depending on what the professor requires from you. Most of my online classes were hybrid, meaning half in class and half online. There is a lot more technology features, so much of the homework and the tests are online. There might be more videos to watch or slides to look at versus classwork or written notes on a board. It is harder to understand when a teacher does not explain it, so online classes are best for those who can quickly figure out things on their own. The only peer-peer interaction is blackboard, and I didn't spend much time reading. I did my work and was done. There is little to no interaction between the professor and student, usually, and the workload is fine if you stay on top of things.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: Actually I really don't know much about the post-grad services at AWC. The career center is a great place for people looking for loccal or in-state jobs. Out of state, they basically can't and won't do much for you. I don't know antything about the alumni network. I am not prospecting for a job in this city because there is no marine biology in the desert.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Since I am a member in the Honor's Program, I am often in classes with very good professors. Many of the professors at AWC care about your success and ability as a student, as well as your future. They are often encouaging, passionate about their subject, and willing to help if you ask questions. The courses are good sources of knowledge and the professors teach well. I have only had one less than excellent professor during my experiences in classes at AWC.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
