I have only been here for one semester, but so far it's good! I think Mathlab is a waste of money and could be used towards paying my classes because I learn nothing from it. So far the professor's I have are excellent, but I've only had 4 so far. The environment is lovely, the people feel so determined and so happy to be getting their career started. I love the different age groups because it makes me feel good that no matter what age you are, you can go back to school and do anything you want.

My experience with Arizona Western College has been a positive one. I have completed general prerequisite courses at Arizona Western College, both physically and online. Throughout most of my time at the college I received financial aid. The whole admissions and registration process runs smoothly and easily for students. What I would change is the accessibility for students to try and get into a program, for example the nursing program. I would change the class size in courses and programs. This would allow for more people in Yuma to have a career opportunity. This would impact this college’s ratings and it would impact the city.
I wish they were more informative, I went in blind and read needed some help but it wasn’t easy to get it. I got financial aid when I was a freshman and didn’t know you had to take many classes to keep the financial aid, I took 2 classes since I wanted to get the hang of it first and they took it away from me. Now that I take more classes I have to pay it all out of pocket and it’s hard, I wish I was told. Changing majors and stuff like that is also hard since you can’t do some things online and you have to make appointments with your counselor which can be a hassle if you work like me. Academics are alright I guess, a lot if professors are really bad and don’t teach very good, you have to teach yourself the material and it’s hard. I have only come across 2 really great professor who go above and beyond to make sure you succeed. Those two are Mr.Close the english teacher and Dr.Moore I greatly recommend them they are passionate and amazing at what they do.
