I took dual enrollment classes through the college at my high school. The registration process was easy.
Central Arizona College has always been a reliable college. They offer plenty of resources for all their students, are very affordable, and give every student a chance. CAC has caring and amazing teachers of all types who always accommodate your needs. CAC is an excellent college! I'm proud to be a Vaquero!
I took dual enrollment classes at the school while attending my high school. I took two math classes, two medical classes, and I'm taking two English classes this year.
My professors were attentive whenever I came to them with my questions, encouraged and motivated me to believe in myself which was always beneficial to me.
If you plan to live on campus. Don’t! The people in charge of housing are extremely discriminatory. The way they assign rooms is just terrible. I’m currently a sophomore and lived on campus my first year. I applied for a room 2 months to the due date . No feedback! They had not even processed it! … a month later I called them endlessly and left them multiple voicemails, no one answered nor returned my calls. When I successfully got to speak with a human, all they could say was single rooms are not unavailable… by the time I applied, the rooms were very much available!! I had a terrible experience with my roommate the first semester and didn’t want to be with anyone else. They offered a doubled room and I accepted but they couldn’t even put me in the building I applied for. They looked for the most tattered one to put me in. Weeks later I realized a student just applied even after the due date and got the single room they said was not available in the building they said was full.
I would highly recommend CAC to anyone. For the majority of my classes I had teachers who were very proactive and wanted me to thrive just as much as I wanted to. Going to CAC is definitely a money saver. Almost all of my credits transferred over directly to a 4 year college. Again I would highly recommend going to CAC
I’m just finishing up my first full semester at CAC and so far I’ve loved every second of it. They have tons of classes I’m interested in for the degree I’m pursuing. The staff and admin are so helpful, the teachers are engaging, and I love my online classes. Definitely recommend it as far as community colleges go.
I love Central Arizona College. The professors are amazing, and the students are all very respectful and kind.
Good teachers but it was like wading through thick pudding to get my financial aid. Then when I would get it too late and couldn’t get what i needed because it was time sensitive I got punished with Finance delays
Before graduation, the school claimed that I owed them money. I spent weeks trying to explain that I didn't break my scholarship requirements. Finally, someone listened to what I had to say and noticed that there was an error on their side. Thanks to her, I was able to graduate. Later on, I tried to go back to school but withdrew from my courses before the drop deadline. Somehow, I was dropped from every class but one. I ended up getting charged for that class. If I had knew that I was still enrolled, I would've attended the class, but there were no notifications. They didn't even attempt to reach out to me for payment prior to the start date. Usually, they won't allow you to attend a class until you've paid for it or arranged a payment plan. Instead, they sent me a bill after the course ended. I tried to fight it but gave up. I'm only rating 3 stars because I plan on returning and hope for a better experience.
My experience at Central Arizona College has been bittersweet. I have always struggled with learning at the same pace as the other students, the instructors at central Arizona college have always been supportive and their when I was in need of help. I have learned to grow at CAC and have resources when I am in need of help. I am also excited to say that due to the support of my instructors, I am currently enrolled in the honors society !
Online CAC is easy to navigate and easy to access resources. The help desk is also easy to access. My professors came from all the CAC campuses because I was a permanent online student so I was able to get a rather diverse experience in my semesters as a student. Did not have the pleasure of experiencing campus life, campus food, or the party scene for the typical college student. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I had no choice but to take only online classes.
I have had a great experience so far with my classes. The few professors that I have had were very professional, kind, and caring.
My experience at this college has been very positive. The professors I've worked with have respected me and given me plenty of time to complete each assignment thoroughly. Overall, I highly recommend this college if you're looking for a laid-back atmosphere and decently priced.
I truly enjoyed my time at CAC. The professors are outstanding and just want to see you achieve your goals.
It very good and small school to start my first two years before transferring university. I do wish there my Art media programs to choose from.
Emailing can be very troublesome, as well as calling. Admissions hardly ever gets back with me. I am transferred to admissions, but I never get a call back once redirected to voicemail.
