Eastern Arizona College Reviews

There are small class sizes, cheap tuition, and most classes transfer. The small class sizes really allow the teachers to focus directly on students to ensure their understanding. The tuition is extremely cheap and will allow any college student the opportunity to eat food other than ramen. The fact that many of the core classes transfer over to other colleges is a god send. Before you go to a university go to a community college first!

If you are looking to complete prerequisites, look no further. Eastern Arizona College is the college for you. As it is the cheapest community college in Arizona, you cannot go wrong with the instructors, student life and experience. It has a amazing and beautiful campus with everything within walking distance. But the best part about the college is the instructors. It was so nice to be in a class room where you weren't just a number you were a person; rather than being at a university. The instructors cared about you and wanted you to succeed. Also, every single one of my credits tranferred from EAC to the school I am going to now for Dental Hygiene. I would recommend this school to anyone!
Eastern Arizona is a great economical resource for 2 year-education as well as a great resource for 4-year degrees. Several Arizona universities have concurrent programs with EAC that allow me to get my Bachelors in Nursing for a lower cost and with the highly praised EAC nursing program backing me.
EAC also has small class sizes and professors that care about passing their class without doing mental or emotional harm in the process. Each professor I have had a class with has just seem called to their subjects. My anatomy professor stands up on her desk just to show us where areas like the patella are. My CNA class's professor has taught for years and been a practicing RN before that. With a lot of practical experience and passion the teachers here really make it obvious without telling us that they care.
