It's a good school to get your general ed courses done. The campus is nice with good food and student life center. The athletics aren't really attended as much or announced. The campus only operating from Monday-Thursday with Friday-Sunday the campus being close with the exception of the cafeteria & couple other places. Pros nice weather, walkable campus, food. Cons lack of student engagement, lack of activities to do on weekends.
I think that Central Arizona College is pretty good overall. They have connecting class paths to two of the biggest universities in Arizona, and the tuition is quite reasonable. The staff has been absolutely helpful since I've started. As a non-traditional student, I sometimes would like there to be more days of the week that my local campus services were available. I would also like the hours to skew a little later, as I work far from the campus and arriving on time for anything that's not a night class is a stretch. There are multiple campuses, but some of them are a bit of a drive.
I really like the classes offered here. The choices may not be much, but it's affordable and most of the teachers really know what they're doing. The only thing I have to complain about is that the ceramics students got their studio hours taken away and that's just not okay. It's like taking away the library!
It's a great school if you know what you need and want. If you are unsure of your needs and wants, help is very hard to find. Administration doesn't really seem to know what they are doing. They don't know the rules of their own institution regarding scholarships and and course outlines. A lot of teachers are very lenient about due dates and late work, in my experience. Overall good experience but a few bad things that are major in my opinion.

I would have continued with my academic career after graduating from High School opposed to coming back 20+years.
Central Arizona College is small, convenate and have great professors. The Professors really care about you.
Central Arizona is a fun school to attend.
My advice for prospective students will be take a tour of the campus first so that you won't get lost as I did and to not let the college scene intimidate you so much. Focus on work.
That i was able to take a tour!
The classes at Central Arizona College are smaller compared to many other schools. This is good because it means more one on one learning and it helps to better understand the material. It means you can ask questions during the class, rather than having to ask questions after class, or not getting to know the professor at all. This intimate setting allows students to perform better in the classroom.
The best thing about my school is how there are many resources to get assistance from, for instance the library staff is very knowledgable about where to find good sources for research papers, the tutoring center have developed a system where everyone can get extra assistance, and the school continues to find ways to reach their students online. Central Arizona College also does a great way of mapping students' courses to transfer to universities.
My classmates were always unique and spoke their minds freely.
It is best known for it's Track program.
There are several branches throughout Pinal County and not every branch is as professional and nice as the Coolidge Campus.
Central Arizona College is perfect for students who are getting their general studies out of the way or are looking for an AA as a starting point of finding the path they want to take for a career. It is not for those who plan on going into a specialized field such as being an Anthropologist. They just don't offer the courses required for specialized goals.
The most frustrating thing about my school is some teachers still treat students like they are still in High School. Once you miss so many classes, despite your high points on homework and tests, they will still withdraw you. I have run into only select teachers who still practice this guidline.
They have a Shakespeare Festival going on today and those are the type of things that seem to be quite popular here.
I really do like this school. It allows me both online and in school classes. When I need help I am able to get with advisers, professors, and financial aid personnel. I have helped my daughter with her school financial aid and it really is a pain. When you call in you are sent to a call center and they have 6 other schools they work with. The only way to get any help there is to stand in line for hours and finally talk to someone from that school...I am able to speak to my school directly. I have personal lines for the proper people, and they get back to me like they say they will. They have much to offer every time I log into my blackboard I see a new event that has been scheduled. When I am not near the college and I have a midterm or final I am able to have it proctored at a local college where I am at...I love it.
Someone that has there goals set and know where they're going and what they want to achieve. This is not a campus for simple "blowoff" classes.
