Student & Graduate Reviews (5)

3 out of 5
Degree: Engineering, General
Graduation Year: 2080

I have been taking classes at this college since the spring semester of 2013. I have to say that first the teaching staff is excellent. I work 8-14 hours a day, 6 days a week, for most of the year. The teachers are willing to work with you and help you if you need it. The problem for me is with the registration/ administration departments. They are more concerned with what time they go home or what they are doing for lunch and who with. They don't care about YOUR problems because it doesn't affect them. They are heartless, inconsiderate, and are only there because they have to be. If you call them on the phone it is even worse, zero professionalism. If you don't pay the day you register you will automatically be deregistered the next day. For those that don't have money growing on trees, it is harder to get classes as farther I get along. For example, Calculus 1 there are no other online math courses that are offered after this. No courses for Calculus and above are offered after 430 pm. No engineering courses are offered after the last course ends at 3pm. Courses that require a lab like chemistry are not offered during the summer. I could go on and on and on. Unless you can register and pay the same day, or you could register early like they tell you that you can and then de-register you and notify you that this has happened after the class is full and the only thing they tell you is "You had to set upi a payment plan within 24 hours, you didn't know? Oh...well...sorry. Just register again and put yourself on a waitlist and you might get into the class." If this was not one of the last 3 classes needed to graduate then I would have transfered already. But whoe cares like the school logo says on the website "...lifelong learning...", probably just because you will never get into the classes you ACTUALLY need to graduate. No wonder AWC only has a 16% graduation rate, and if you don't believe you can check it yourself. They also have a 52% drop out rate. My advice DO NOT GO HERE AFTER 35+ CREDITS!!!!! THEY WILL SCREW YOU OVER EVERY SINGLE SEMESTER BECAUSE THEY DON'T CARE IN THE REGISTRATION/ ADMINISTRATION SIDE OF THE HOUSE.

Degree: Welding
Graduation Year: 2018

I moved here in August and enrolled at AWC, worst mistake I've made. Most of the staff in the offices are extremely unhelpful and don't care about you or your situations. I've had terrible experiences with the registration office both semesters. If you want to go to a college that you'll enjoy, don't go to AWC. I'm enrolled in welding and they have an excellent program for that that's the only positive.

Degree: Education Administration
Graduation Year: 2012

Arizona Western Colleges has staff members that do not like their jobs, are not nice to their students, and are simply rude. Every class I have taken with this school were not taken seriously - by staff members or other students. Simply a terrible school.

Degree: Aeronautical/Aerospace Engineering Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 2016

Arizona Western College is a great school to further your studies but yet continue living your life. They have a variety of classes from online to late courses. They are a fraction of the cost compared to a university which is a plus. The only setback I saw was the networking side of it. IN any degree networking is a must, especially if you want to obtain employment after you graduate. I felt that my network could have grown much more if I were in at university instead of a college.

Degree: Nursing Assistant/Aide and Patient Care Assistant/Aide
Graduation Year: 2014

I think this is a great school to attend. I attended AWC to complete prerequisite classes for a university I am transferring to, and was able to get into most of my classes. I found the science classes, namely Biology classes, extremely difficult to get into so some students were forced to take other classes online at other colleges, but that would be my only complaint about this college. It should be noted that the president and science staff are aware of this problem and are looking at options to help resolve it.
