A repeat Best Value School Designee, Eastern Arizona College (EAC) stands out for reasons other than its cost to attend. The school focuses on degrees – and certificate programs – that actually lead to jobs, something that too many in ivory tower higher education pooh-pooh.  Nursing-RN and pre-nursing programs are popular as are the certificate retraining programs in welding and computer assisted design & drafting.

Serving its low density geographical area, EAC’s progressive approach to the needs of its target population has accounted for a fifty percent growth in enrollment in recent years.  And their zero percent default rate on student loans indicates these graduates, transferees (to 4-year colleges), and certificate earners do get the jobs they train for.

Eighty-six percent of EAC’s students’ comments are positive, an unusually high number. If you or someone you know are thinking about college and are located within EAC’s geographic coverage, we recommend you consider Eastern Arizona College. It’s likely you will be among the majority that think very highly of this progressive school. 


What our Students are Saying...

"EAC has a great price on its tuition and [room and board] are reasonable. The financial aid at the school is quick and they make sure that everything is up to date as much as possible. "

"It is a small school that provides all the amenities of a large university. The instructors are always willing to help you succeed and the classes are small enough that they get to know who you are as a person and not a number. "

"It's cheap, it's easy to change majors, and it's a great place to go before going onto a 4-year college. There is a great nursing program and amazing music program here! I'm glad I made the choice to come."
