Federal & State Reports
The IPEDS Peer Analysis System is designed to enable a user to compare a postsecondary institution of the user's choice to a group of peer institutions which are also selected by the user. It provides a variety of analytical features for peer analysis. This includes the ability to create new calculated variables, to sort and rank schools based on the data items selected, and to view standard report templates.

Student Right to Know
Arizona Western College is pleased to provide the following information regarding our institution's graduation/completion and transfer-out rates. The information is provided in compliance with the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended. The rates reflect the graduation/completion and transfer-out status of our full-time, first-time, degree or certificate seeking undergraduates and student athletes that received athletic financial aid who enrolled during the 2011-2012 school year for whom 150% of the normal time-to-completion has elapsed.
During the fall semester of 2011, 904 first-time, full-time, certificate or degree-seeking undergraduate students entered Arizona Western College. After 3 years (i.e., as of August 31, 2013), 16% of these students had graduated from our institution or completed their programs and 16% had transferred to other higher education institutions.
Enrollment of our full-time, degree-/certificate-seeking undergraduates and students who received athletically-related aid during the 2013-2014 school year is also provided.
Questions related to this report should be directed to the Office of Institutional Effectiveness, Research, and Grants at (928) 344-7620.
While reviewing this information, please bear in mind:
- All graduation rates are based upon three years of attendance, which equates to 150% of the normal completion time of our longest program.
- These charts do not identify the reasons why our students withdrew; therefore, students who withdrew for personal or medical reasons are included.
- Graduation and transfer-out rates do not include students who left school to serve in the armed forces or on official church missions or with a foreign aid service of the federal government, or students who died or were totally and permanentaly disabled.
- A pound sign (#) denotes any cohort/subcohort with fewer than five students. The College is not required to disclose this information. A "N/A" denotes not applicable (cohort/subcohort had no students).

College Employee & Student Satisfaction
Student and employee satisfaction define what Arizona Western College believes is excellence and high-quality standards. The staff designed and administered a questionnaire to study academic, social, and environmental aspects of satisfaction within the college. This study assists the college administration and instructors with their quality-assurance initiatives, focusing priorities, and with implementing resources to increase community satisfaction.
For the first time in Fall 2013, we measured employee satisfaction. While Arizona Western College data are baseline data for comparison in the future, comparative results were available from other two-year colleges across the nation who took the same survey.
The College Employee Satisfaction Survey was administered in September-October 2013 in cooperation with Noel-Levitz.
The survey was collected online during work hours in Fall 2013. There were 347 respondents. Please see the following links to view results and how we compared to community colleges across the nation.Survey results-AWC Fall CESS

Arizona Western College regularly measures student satisfaction. Beginning in Fall 2010, we began using the Student Satisfaction Inventory by Noel-Levitz to gather baseline and comparison data every two years. A benefit of this instrument is that comparative results are available from other two-year colleges across the nation and in the Western States who took the same survey at the same time.
The survey was collected in class in October 2016. Please see the following links to view results.
