Arizona Western College is a medium, 2-year, public community college. This coed college is located in a city in a suburban setting and is primarily a commuter campus. It offers certificate and associate degrees.

From the Institution

Arizona Western College was the first community college established under the Arizona Community College Law of 1960, sponsored by the late Senator Harold Giss of Yuma. In 1961, an overwhelming majority of the electorate of Yuma County approved the establishment of a community college district. The College became the first institution of high-er education established in Arizona since 1920, when Phoenix College was founded. To provide even more opportunities for the residents of Yuma and La Paz counties, Arizona Western College partners with other colleges and universities in implementing transfer articulated pathway pro-grams. In addition to the collaboration with Northern Arizona University-Yuma, programs exist with Arizona State University, The University of Arizona, and several other accredited institutions of higher education.
