AWC enrollment tour prepares high school seniors for college


YUMA — AWC has been expanding its horizons and eliminating barriers to obtain a college degree by meeting students where they are and bringing resources and services to area high schools through the AWC Enrollment Tour.
During the series of events, high school seniors from Yuma County and beyond will have an opportunity to join an AWC New Student Orientation to Advisement and Registration session and visit resources and program tables to learn about services offered at AWC. Financial Aid representatives will also be on site to answer questions about FAFSA.
Participating schools include Kofa High School, Cibola High School, San Luis High School, Gila Ridge High School, Vista High School, and Yuma High School. San Pasqual High School and Antelope High School students will also participate in an event that will be held at the AWC Yuma Campus.
“Our recruitment and advisement teams are continuing to cultivate their partnerships with local high schools through the AWC Enrollment Tour. High school seniors will receive the support, information and resources they need to transition to AWC in the summer or fall of 2023,” said Biridiana Martinez, AWC Admissions, Outreach and Recruitment Coordinator.
“AWC is the only college in Arizona with all three public universities on campus. Start at AWC and seamlessly transfer to one of our partner universities, and stay here in Yuma or go anywhere you choose to further your education. Let us help you get started and enroll in your first semester of college.”
