Paradise Valley Community College, located in Phoenix, Arizona, is a two-year community college that serves as a pipeline to Arizona state universities.
Tuition at PVCC is about one-third the cost of tuition at a four-year Arizona state university. Despite the savings, PVCC still provides plenty of financial aid for students each academic year.
Paradise Valley is committed to ensuring that students continue with their academic pursuits. Students are guaranteed admission to any Arizona State university with 35 transfer credits, and can transfer with an associate’s degree after 60 credits (approximately two years).
PVCC has a diverse academic program, offering associate’s degrees in Art, Education, Business, General Studies, and Science, along with an array of certificates of completion.
The admissions process at PVCC is relatively straightforward; students need only to apply, take their placement tests, fill out their FAFSA and pay for tuition. PVCC does not have an application fee, and everything can be filled out online through their website.
PVCC strongly encourages students to have an active college life by participating in leadership programs, student clubs, and wellness programs, because students who participate in extracurricular programs through their school will often find the transition from high school student to college student much smoother.
100% of students gave Paradise Valley Community College 4 stars overall.
I recently transferred here from Phoenix College and I must say, overall, I enjoy this school much more. I love looking at the beautiful architecture and interior design of the school. The students are much more friendly and respectful and seemed to be very involved with their school. The classes are slightly more difficult but I like a challenge so its not necessarily a bad thing. Unfortunately, the advising and admissions staff is not as knowledgeable or helpful as PC and the quality of the art classes are not as beneficial, but that is due to the fact that PC's art staff are all present professional artists. In the end though, I am very happy that I decided to come to this school and recommend it to anyone who would like to attend!
