Arizona Western College Reviews

Walking into this school i was expecting much out of it because it really is the only college in yuma. I would think they would have many degree options but they did not have the one i wanted.
I am currently only a dual enrollment student at Yuma Catholic and Arizona Western College. I have had the opportunity to take several college courses at Arizona Western on and off campus. It is more difficult to take online courses because there is a huge lack of communication on the professors side because they lag when you reach out to them. Classes at the college are diffidently better.
This is a great community college for students graduating from high school to go to before going to a graduate school. The staff and faculty is very friendly and professional. The campus is a safe environment that is patrolled by the campus police. Great selection of classes to choose from.
Arizona Western College is a great college, installations are in good conditions and must of the professors own a higher level of education as master or doctorate degrees which means that professors also own a lot of experience. I will make some changes in the classes that all the semesters are in wait list of 18 or 20 people, if only college put together those people in wait list they will made a full class in a different hour and with a different professor which means creating new jobs. Even though is a small college compare to universities I like that the AWC personal send emails and put some posters around the installations to invited the students to participate in some of the events that will occur during the month. I am about to finish my minor degree and I just hope to learn thousands of new things and enjoy my last semester as a matador.
I am attending the nursing program with AWC. The instructors are very knowledgable and helpful. I believe the school could use a whole Nursing department remodel with study areas designated for only nursing student. Right now we jump from classroom to classroom each semester in different buildings that are dedicated to other majors.
I like that the schedule for classes is very flexible there are many classes offered online and at extended campuses.
My experience at Arizona Western College has been great, I am currently looking to get 3 certificates, and it was really professional and resourceful for success. I would like to see more classes online, and on the San Luis, AZ campus.
There are so many options for class times that you are available to make your schedule perfect for your needs.
I have yet to have a bad experience at this school.
My teachers have all been wonderful. Due to the class sizes being small the teachers care about your success and are willing to provide help. The campus is large but it seems small so it's easy to get to know people.
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 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.
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.

I've never had any major issues in courses the professors could not help me with.
I have yet to get my degree, so I'm not sure. However, I imagine it's as valid as any other college's.

More of a personal issue. I wish I could retain information better.
I can't say it's the best of the best, but it gets an education in ya.
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.
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.
I really haven't used these services yet so I have no comments.
