2024-2025 Yavapai College Catalog

Welcome from the President

President ImageIt is my distinct honor to welcome you to Yavapai College! YC is a student-focused college that seeks to engage you in a quality learning experience.

Whether you are attending college for the first time, returning to college, preparing to enter the job market, transferring to a four-year college, upgrading workforce skills or just taking a course for pleasure, YC is here to help you successfully complete your goals.

Our nationally recognized education and training programs are offered at convenient times, in-person and online. With six campus locations across Yavapai County, opportunity is within your reach.

You may know that Yavapai College became the first rural community college in Arizona to offer baccalaureate degrees along with our short-term credentials, certificates and associate degree programs.  You now can achieve your bachelor's degree at significantly reduced costs and stay close to home.  It is our hope that you will receive your degree and stay in our wonderful community working and living in support of our local economy. 

In making the decision to attend Yavapai College, you are on the right track to creating a better life. Here, you will find great opportunities for learning, growth and development in a welcoming, inclusive, purposeful community. What may not be apparent from the catalog is the most distinctive characteristic of YC: A community of supportive, dedicated faculty, staff and administrators who care about your education, share your aspirations and want nothing more than to see you succeed.

We've adopted a slogan that is really an aspirational statement: "Be More...". We want you to leave Yavapai College better off than when you came to us. You can 'be more' and we would be honored to help you achieve your dreams and become part of your personal story.

Again, welcome to Yavapai College.

Lisa B. Rhine, Ph.D.
President, Yavapai College
