Students at EA are taught by attentive, university-level, educators in small class and small college environments. So take a look where you never thought to explore before and visit our campus.

Small Classes. Lots of Support.

Half of our classes at EA have 10 or less students. You won’t get lost in a crowd here. You will be mentored by highly credentialed, dedicated faculty who make learning interesting and relevant and your success a priority. You’ll also have easy access to support services like academic counseling, faculty advising and free 24/7 tutoring. EA is a community that cares about your success, both in and out of class.

Really Affordable Tuition. High Quality Education.

Zero—that’s the amount of debt most Eastern Arizona College students graduate with! Our tuition is 75% less than state universities and a fraction of the cost of trade schools. You’ll save a lot on tuition, but you won’t sacrifice quality. EA students enjoy high acceptance and degree completion rates at their top university choices and higher than national average pass rates on professional certification exams.

So Much Fun. Easy Campus Living.

Whether a participant or spectator, you’ll keep a busy schedule with performing arts events, athletic competitions, lots of student clubs, and more. Living on campus in one of our affordable, comfortable residence halls puts you close to everything on campus and includes a meal plan at the delicious Gila Hank’s Café. Free fun and friendship, free admission to campus events, free WiFi, and free campus parking all included!

Transfer and Career-Ready Degrees. High-Demand Certificates.

Is your goal to transfer to a four-year university after earning a well-priced associate degree, including all your general education requirements? Or maybe you’re interested in a two-year degree that prepares you directly for the workforce? Eastern Arizona College has more 60 associate degree options to choose from. We also have 35+ fast-track certificate programs that prepare you for in-demand career fields, several in as little as one semester.

On the education journey, beginnings matter as much as ends. Low tuition unlocks opportunity and small college experiences exist where you never thought to look. Professors who actually know you await. Eastern Arizona College is calling.

I have made so many friends and grown so much as a person since coming to EA. I feel like myself here, and I feel very supported.
