Arizona welcomes you
International students in the Southwest
Our country’s diversity is what makes the United States great. We achieve diversity with people like you – our international students. Picture yourself in the beautiful Southwest, enjoying 300 days of sunshine per year, achieving educational success at Maricopa Community Colleges. The Phoenix metro area – also known as the Valley of the Sun – is the fifth largest city in the nation. There is a plethora for local and state-wide exploration and recreation, including one of the natural world wonders – the Grand Canyon.
Our academic degrees prepare you to continue your studies at a four-year university in Arizona, or elsewhere in the United States. If you wish to look for work in your field sooner, our occupational programs can prepare you for your chosen career. For students who wish to study remotely or online, Maricopa Community Colleges offers distance learning and all-online programs.
