THATCHER, AZ—EAC’s admissions, financial aid, and counseling/advising departments are gearing up for the new school year and are ready to meet with you and help you register for the Fall 2006 semester which begins on August. 21.

Maybe you want to build new cabinets in your home, play the guitar, or learn to read the night sky. Or, maybe you have already taken some classes at the college level but never finished up your degree. Did you just graduate from high school but weren’t sure about going on to college because of the cost or the time commitment or because you thought it would be too hard? Perhaps you always wanted to go back to school but were too busy raising a family.

Eastern Arizona College is the right place for you if any of these scenarios apply. Here’s why: • EAC offers loads of personal enrichment courses that can be taken for a letter grade or on a pass/fail basis.

• EAC counselors can help students transfer credits from other schools toward a degree that will transfer to any Arizona university and most out-of-state universities.

• EAC has one of the lowest tuition rates of any community college in the state and many Graham County high school graduates can qualify for scholarships set aside just for them.

• EAC offers both day and evening classes and in some instances, weekend short-term classes.

• In the math and English areas, EAC offers placement testing that will put you in the class level that you need.

• Tutoring is available in all other academic areas.

• Time? It’s an issue for everyone. That’s why EAC offers many short-term and late-start classes.

If you have been thinking about becoming a student at EAC, now is the time to make it a reality. If you know which classes you want to take, give us a call or go online, and get registered—but if you’re not quite sure, or if you want some help developing a workable schedule for your situation, call or come by our counseling office (428-8253) and let our team of professionals help you make your education dreams come true.

If you are worried about how to pay for it, call our financial aid office at 428-8287. They can connect you to federal grants and scholarships.

Tuition for EAC’s Fall Session is $50 for the first credit hour, and only $100 for two to six credits for Arizona residents. Full-time students can take 12 or more credits for only $610 a semester. Senior Citizen Scholarships are available that cover the cost of in-state tuition for students 55 years of age and older.

Classes begin August 21, however; students may register through August 30.

If you have any questions about registration please call EAC’s records and registration office at 428-8270, or call the EAC counseling department at 428-8253. Online registration can be accomplished at www.eac.edu. A complete class schedule is available there as well.
