Arizona Western College will not tolerate violence in any form against anyone and will take prompt action to eliminate any hostile environment and prevent its recurrence. We encourage you to report any incidents of violence, harassment, stalking, or sexual misconduct. Retaliation against any person who makes a good faith report or any other person who participates in the investigation of any such report is prohibited.
If you are on campus and need immediate assistance, you may call Campus Police directly (see number below) or use any of the emergency call boxes.

TIMELYCARE (24/7 TELEHEALTH ACCESS)
Arizona Western College is excited to offer TimelyCare - a new telehealth program for students. The services will provide access to 24/7 mental virtual health care from anywhere in the United States, with no cost to visit! Whether you're feeling down, anxious, or overwhelmed, you will be able to talk to a licensed provider from your smartphone or any web-enabled device. Licensed providers are available to offer mental health support via phone or secure video visits. TimelyCare allows students to see the profiles, faces and specialty care details of a diverse range of licensed psychiatrists and counselors available to them. They can choose to meet with a specific provider or select the first available. Typical consultations begin within 5-10 minutes – less than the amount of time it takes to walk across campus or wait in line for Starbucks.
