Early College Tuition: Steep Discount Announced for 17 & Under Students

AWC chose Cibola High School as the site to announce a new tuition rate that will make it easier for students 17 and under to attend college. The new $25 per credit rate, which goes into effect the Summer of 2017, is less than 1/3 of the standard tuition rate of $82 a credit hour, for a savings of over $170 for a three-credit class.

The Summer Session at Arizona Western College is a perfect opportunity for high-achieving high school students who want to get ahead, or complete their general education classes for a fraction of the cost prior to transfer to a university. Many students also take advantage of dual-credit and concurrent credit classes during the school year, through partnerships at all area high schools, public and private, as well as through the Southwest Technical Education District of Yuma (STEDY), a local provider for career-technical coursework.

“Arizona Western College is committed to student success and to the communities that we serve,” commented Bryan Doak, AWC’s Vice President for Student Services.  “It's is my belief that the students who take advantage of an early college experience program are more likely to graduate high school, enroll in college and persist to completion than their peers.”

This special rate will be effective beginning with this year’s Summer Session. Registration for summer begins March 20, and classes begin May 30.
