Central Arizona College Reviews

585 reviews
All Categories
I find Central Arizona College to be good. The teachers are helpful. In fact, I have yet to run into an unhelpful teacher. Additionally, I find the costs very reasonable. Thus, I have great return on my investment. However, their range of subjects are lacking. There are hardly any art classes and it is very restricted. In other words, the classes are more designed for students wanting a technical degree. Currently, the campus is under construction. They are putting in a new cafeteria and science building. This is for the best, because both of the other current building are in not so great condition. Furthermore, this college is in Arizona, so it is pretty sunny. Nevertheless, they have nearly no shading and no grassy area to sit on. Besides these few issues this is a great college. Mainly, because the teachers are nice, the classes are decent, and the tuition is reasonable.

Central Arizona College is a great school. The SMC campus has by far been my favorite! The professors have been very nice and stay in contact with you very well with any help that you need. Plus, CAC offers a lot of students the two years free if they partner with your High School. The classes sizes are generally 24:1 or less!
Central Arizona College is a wonderful transition for high school students to the College atmosphere as well as non-traditional students returning to the classroom. The campus is clean and easy to navigate, as well as beautifully landscaped. There are many opportunities for athletics, student life and immersion to this college community. The professors are top notch and the ratio is comfortable to still receive wonderful interaction as well as personalized instruction to meet your current subject knowledge.
I would attend again if my career path changes to receive another certificate or change my course of study.
