The academic flexibility at Arizona Western College benefits students a lot through day and evening classes, online and traditional classes, and parallel bi-session classes to help them fit school into their daily lives. Class meetings twice a week (bi-sessions) provide students with choices between a Monday/Wednesday session schedule and a Tuesday/Thursday session routine. This also allows students to catch up on a session they have missed since the same professor teaches both Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday sessions at the same pace. There are also evening sessions for those students that work during the daytime.
Students also have online class options. Online classes give students even more freedom, but they call for more responsibility from the student. Instructors still have office hours, besides email and phone communication, so students can walk in when they have problems and need help. There are also hybrid classes—part web-based, part traditional—which meet only a couple of times during the semester. Online classes, evening classes, and parallel bi-session classes make it easier for students to adjust their class schedule to their job and other extracurricular activities.
