Office of the President
Phoenix College is proud to be celebrating our 95th anniversary of serving as the heart of higher education in Arizona! Since 1920, people of every age and background have come to PC to discover new interests, explore new careers, or begin new paths while becoming part of the college’s rich tradition of teaching, learning, and student success.
It is our goal to help students make passionate connections to learning, setting the stage for great achievements. With that in mind, PC has embraced the Learning College concept, a nationally-acclaimed strategy for increasing student success, retention, and persistence.
Pursue your educational goals in a cutting-edge learning environment where the opportunities continue to expand. Over the past several years, the historic Phoenix College campus has been the site of some spectacular upgrades, including a new One-Stop Student Enrollment Center, a 10,000-square-foot Student Union, a holistically re-designed Sophomore Square, and upgrades to the John Paul Theatre. In addition, PC proudly debuted the new Phoenix College Center for Nursing Excellence and the Phoenix College Center for Excellence in Healthcare Education, each providing state-of-the-art learning environments with dynamic spaces housing sophisticated technology and equipment. All of these exceptional spaces serve to engage and connect our campus community while elevating the concept of student service.
As PC’s campus grows and changes, our outstanding Phoenix College faculty and staff remain committed to upholding the highest academic standards. Expert instruction in small, personalized classes places the focus on you, whether you are completing the first two years of a bachelor's degree, preparing for a career, updating your skills, or pursuing your passions. And with PC’s excellent support services such as tutoring, financial aid, scholarships, advisement, and counseling, you will be well prepared to succeed.
Outside of the classroom, the active and engaging Phoenix College campus experience includes opportunities for leadership and personal growth, from cultural to recreational, athletic to academic. Develop your interests and skills while contributing to the vibrancy of a highly diverse student body composed of students from over 100 countries.
I invite you to visit our campus and discover for yourself why Phoenix College has served as the launching point for brighter futures since 1920. Start here, go anywhere!
