4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The college has everything that a student would want and because it's a community college there aren't so many students that everything is crowded.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: My program is in aviation and I'm becoming a helicopter pilot. The program is definitely not like any other at the college- we actually go to two schools at the same time. There's the degree portion of it where we attend classes at Yavapai College (math, english, psychology), and then we also attend our aviation classes there or at Guidance Helicopters. On top of those classes, we also have flights that we have to schedule throughout the week. We're very busy. After the program, there's a good chance that one may get hired on at Guidance to be a Flight Instructor.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: All the instructors I've had were great. They really enjoy their subject matter and have a way of teaching it that makes you want to learn. Yes, even my math teacher.

It's easy to register for classes and your workload can be as light or heavy as you want it.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My advisor made sure to walk me through everything that was needed for the application, and then once I was accepted, I was walked through the orientation process. There were orientation meetings that informed us about everything we needed to know about the program, financial help, and aviation laws.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: All the online teachers I have were accommodating to students and answered questions in a timely manner. They stayed current with grades and made reminders of homework due. It seems they really want their students to succeed.

4 College Junior

Career Services: I can only comment for my degree program. The school only hires on it's own students so they're good about trying to place them.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility definitely depends on the program you're in. I, for instance, am in the aviation program and because there are so few students there are only 1 of each class needed each semester so it's not very flexible. If you're in a more mainstream program, however, there is a lot of flexibility with classes. The teachers are also very accommodating to student's needs.

4 College Junior

Student Body: The college has so many different programs that there are many types of students at this school. Anything that you might want to study is offered and most students plan on moving on to a 4 year University. While they all like to hang out and have fun, they're also involved in their studies.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid department is very straight forward and educates you on what would work best for you and why.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I mostly do online schooling because of my disability. I am legally blind and cannot drive so I go to school online. The teachers and staff are very accommodating. My experience at Yavapai college has been awesome.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The professors are great. They are knowledgeable and educating. I love how accommodating of this school has been. The registration process is easy. Yavapai college is an overall good school.

5 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I am very happy and grateful with the help that I have recieved. I am a single mother who is legally blind and really appreciate it.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Most of the instructors are knowledgeable and willing to share their knowledge.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The college has numerous certificate programs that will prepare a student for a carreer, however, I am choosing to use the college for my AA to advance to a four year program.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I'm working on completing my Associate of Arts for the purpose of transferring to a four year University to finish a Bachelor's degree. For the most part, I've not really been able to get overly involved in classes pertaining to my major.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Love the class registration process.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: I've found that the workload for online classes is much heavier than traditional classroom courses. For the most part, I've had some great instructors, but there have been a couple that make it very hard to understand what they are requiring and/or they are not easy to contact. An example would be that one instructor took nearly a week to respond to an email about an assignment, so that by time I received the response, it was the due date. Not good.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I've been able to take most of my class work online which helps tremendousely since I do have to work and also have a grandson that I'm raising.

4 College Senior

Student Body: Although the college is located in the mile high city of Prescott, Arizona which is rather remote, the diversity of the student body is broad. I've met students from the East Coast, the Mid West which led me to ask the almighty question. "What brought you all the way to Prescott, Arizona to go to a community college?" I've gotten just as many different answers as times I've asked the questions.

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The calibar of classes, degree and certificate programs are fantastic. I plan to take as many classes that will transfer to a four year program as possible to help save on tuition fees.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: There are many computers in the library, classes and in a student help center which makes it easy to access classes, homework, grades and many other things to be successful. The administrative staff is super friendly and very helpful. The president of the college takes time to personally learn about many of the students and will often be seen stopping and chatting while walking across the grounds. The campus istself is beautifully landscaped with many places to slip away and either just sit and enjoy the views or to study outside. There is a perfomring arts center that always has a full calendar of events, not to mention the sports teams that provide entertainment for lots of enthusiastic fans.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Yavapai has a welcoming campus, great classes (for the most part), and it is well equipped with computer labs, library, science labs, etc.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The class sizes are usually small, so each student can get personal help from the instructor.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: There are some job fairs on campus, and internship opportunities for students.

4 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: There is a wonderful alumni network that gets graduates more involved in college events.
