Since fall 1969, Central Arizona College has been serving and educating the diverse communities of Pinal County by providing accessible, educational, economic, cultural and personal growth opportunities for all ages.
CAC provides a world-class learner experience and empowers its students and staff to succeed by providing a true learning community.
It is the college’s goal to be transparent about what is needed for each program of study or transfer pathway while providing inspiring and relevant courses. CAC’s guided pathways provide a clear road map of sequenced courses that lead to a specific degree or certificate.
With nine areas of interest, students can find the pathway they want to a great career. For a listing of the nine areas of interest and related guided pathways maps visit: www.centralaz.edu/academics/areas-of-interest.
Community members are provided multiple learning opportunities through career training, personal enrichment classes, online and university transfer courses, and continuing education classes.
In-state tuition for the 2022-2023 academic year is $50 per credit.
All students who live in Pinal County and graduate from a Pinal County high school are eligible to receive two years of in-state tuition (fall/spring, fall/spring) funded by CAC and the CAC Foundation through Pinal Promise.
Pinal Promise provides funding for any tuition need that has not been met, meaning that Pinal Promise funds will be applied after all other financial aid has been applied to the student’s account (this excludes student loans).
To be eligible for Pinal Promise, students must participate in 20 hours of community service that can be completed in high school or while attending CAC and complete the CAC Scholarship application. For a complete listing of requirements and additional information visit www.centralaz.edu/pinalpromise.
Classes begin Monday, Aug. 22. Advising appointments are available face-to-face on campus, virtually through Microsoft TEAMS, or by phone. To schedule an appointment with an adviser visit www.centralaz.edu/advising.
CAC business hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. For additional assistance call 520.494.5111 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
