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.
I enjoy the small-town feel at CAC, the staff and students are like friendly neighbors and everyone tries to help each other out with assignments, explaining how specific sites and credits work and helping to get things done. I would like if CAC fixed their website, it's difficult to navigate and they're always adding some sort of update that makes it even more difficult to understand.
