Yavapai College, with locations in Prescott and other areas around Arizona, understands and embraces the diversity today's college students have to offer. With six campuses and classes available days, evenings, weekends and online Yavapai makes it easy for anyone to pursue higher education. With over 14,000 students enrolled, it offers certificate and degree programs that are easily transferrable to four-year colleges. Currently offering 76 programs of study ranging from accounting to social work, there is something to satisfy everyone's interest at Yavapai.
Committed to making higher education affordable to all, the college provides generous amounts of financial aid to students. Last year, almost $17 million in aid was awarded to nearly 4,000 students. Because the average age of its students is 27, the college understands the needs of non-traditional students and seeks to help by providing child care services, career advising and many support services for those with disabilities.
A variety of activities and organizations are available on the various campuses to give students an opportunity to interact outside the classroom as well as provide help in governing the school. The Student Leadership Council, available at all six campuses, allows students the chance to have a strong voice in their education. In fact, Yavapai College President Penny Wills regularly meets with these groups to get their input and suggestions on various topics. A number of clubs and organizations are also available, including ones for Veterans and students interested in politics and native American culture.
A commitment to get children involved in education at an early age is a big part of the Yavapai experience. Home to the Webb Family Enrichment Center, it not only provides a place for children to learn and grow, but also acts as a place where students can enroll their children and have them well taken care of while attending classes themselves. The Webb Center also acts as a lab school for early childhood education students, letting them gain valuable experience while nurturing the children of fellow classmates.
From its beginnings in 1968 to today's modern campus and technology, Yavapai College has always strived to meet the needs of its students. Offering athletic competition in baseball, softball, soccer and volleyball the school always wants to provide the full college experience for its students. For those students majoring in the many health care occupations available, Yavapai provides the most up-to-date training and experienced faculty to help them achieve their dreams. If a student is seeking a college that cares about them as a whole person, Yavapai is the perfect choice.
