In accordance with the US Immigration law, students from neighboring Mexican communities attending classes at Arizona Western College are also subject to international student admission requirements. A Student Visa is required documentation for students who wish to cross the border on a regular basis for the purpose of attending classes at AWC. Commuter students may study full-time or part-time.
Arizona-Sonora Tuition Waiver
Tuition waivers are available to students from Sonora through an agreement between Arizona-Mexico Commision and the Comision Sonora-Arizona. Qualifying students from Sonora who are studying in Arizona may pay in-state tuition for a maximum of two years. Students from Arizona who wish to study in Sonora have a series of educational and living options available. For more information, contact the International Office.
