TRIO KEYS Program at Arizona Western College

As recently as 2013, extensive research has shown that increasing the rate of community college completion is essential for the economic success of our students, states, and nation. Given the proper resources and with guidance to navigate difficult life challenges, we know that our community college students can rise to their potential.

The TRIO KEYS Program at Arizona Western College is a federally grant-funded program that serves approximately 240 students each school year. The KEYS Program assists students in earning their associate degrees by providing a range of financial, academic, and personal supports including comprehensive and personalized advisement, career counseling, tutoring, peer mentoring, graduation and transfer guidance, and financial aid and scholarship assistance – All in one convenient location

The TRIO KEYS Program also offers reserved cohort classes for students who need additional support and assistance with English and math courses. Additionally, our first-year students can take advantage of having a dedicated Peer Mentor to help them navigate the challenges of their first and second semesters.

The TRIO KEYS Program office is now located on the northwest end of the AWC Yuma Campus in Cottage 1/KEYS Building. We are excited for this new space that allows us to bring our advising staff, tutors, peer mentors, and students together in one central location.

The TRIO KEYS Program is currently accepting applications for the 2016 – 2017 school year. You can contact the Program office at (928) 344-7761, or visit us online at www.azwestern.edu/keys.
