The City of Phoenix Partnership

City Employees, Pursue your Associate Degree
with Phoenix College

Advance your career by earning an associate degree (AAS) through a unique program that's been developed especially for you.  Jointly spearheaded by the City of Phoenix and Phoenix College, the partnership gives you the freedom to choose from multiple fields of study, without commuting to campus.  Popular programs include:

  • General Business
  • Accounting
  • Management
  • Organizational Management
  • Administrative Professional


The Essentials

Each class will meet only one night per week, Monday through Thursday—over an eight-week period.  You can sign up for one, or multiple courses, depending on your preferences.  Classes are generally limited to 30 students.

As a partnership student, you'll enjoy:

  • Hybrid course structure enabling you to interact with instructors in person, and from home
  • In-Person classes that are held on the top floor of the Calvin C. Goode Building, in downtown Phoenix
  • A supportive learning environment comprised of your coworkers
  • Tuition reimbursement, provided you meet the city's requirements. 
    Courses must be completed with a grade of "C," or higher, for reimbursement.
