Arizona Western College Offering Yuma, La Paz County Residents Rebated Tuition
Arizona Western College this week unveiled its "Yuma Promise" program.
It allows Yuma County high school grads to have their out-of-pocket tuition and fees repaid to them if they get an associate’s degree at the Yuma community college and move on to a degree program in the city from one of the state’s three public universities. Students also have to fill out the federal FAFSA form for financial aid.
This follows a similar program introduced for residents of La Paz County.
Daniel Corr joined The Show to talk more about this. He’s president of Arizona Western College, where he said two-thirds of the students are the first in their family to attend college.
