About CAC

Central Arizona College prides itself on catering to a diverse student population throughout the Pinal County region in Arizona.

With nine campuses and learning centers, the main one being situated in Coolidge, Central Arizona College is accessible to a great number of students.

Central’s associate’s degrees and vocational certificates encompass a broad spectrum of disciplines, leading to careers or four-year degrees in the arts, sciences, business, trade, and technical fields.

With the average student being around 35 years old, Central’s student age range is one example of its diversity. The Early College and First Step programs, catering to the youngest end of the spectrum, allow high school students to get a head start on their college study.
