I have been attending Yavapai College for about 2 years now, both online & face-to-face, and overall I've had a wonderful experience with such compassionate, understanding, and amazing professors.
I am attending YC currently for my certification as a CCMA, Certified Clinical Medical Assistant. I have so much to learn in this course along with my peers. It has been tough transitioning to hybrid learning in such troubling times. Luckily, thanks to my amazing professors, they made hybrid learning more easeful. The lectures we cover in class are covered in PowerPoints that contain a whole lot of information that directly helps me and my peers prepare us for the testing we will be taking in the spring for our certification. They also provide you with a knowledge based assessment quiz after each chapter to test our knowledge on the lecture covered for the week. This course also provides you with a remarkable Skills course to help prepare you and become successful in the future. YC, You Can

I took a few online classes and definitely prefer in person. Although some of the teachers set up online classes good to learn, some of them also are confusing or practically just reading textbook and reporting answers. Get an in person class if you're able!
This was the worst way to waste about 30,000 dollars and 4 years of time on a 2-year degree. The financial aid department will inform you the day classes start that they couldn't do their job. Every. Semester. Of. Every. Year. The actual teachers are terrible. You're treated like a number here. Honestly if your reading this RUN. And run fast. I even legally changed my name a year after I started and was called the wrong name for the 4 years I attended. When Covid hits again they'll cancel classes, fail you, drop your GPA and send you a bill in the RIGHT name. Funny how that works huh? Just officially dropped this turd of a school this morning. I MEAN IT RUN.
