Many of our students arrive from Phoenix, Laveen, Tempe, Guadalupe and the surrounding area to attend classes at the main campus or our offsite facility in Guadalupe; we also offer evening courses in Laveen at Betty Fairfax High School.
In fiscal year 2015-16, approximately 6,000 students enrolled at SMCC; 70 percent were first-generation college students and 48 percent had an intent to transfer to a university to further their education. And, with more than 75 percent of these students identifying as a minority, SMCC has been federally-designated as a Minority Serving and Hispanic Serving Institution.
Our small, personalized classes are offered days, evenings and online, and are led by an engaged and accomplished faculty. Career and academic counseling are also available. SMCC is also a Strengths-Based Institution, helping you first determine your own personal strengths, and then strategizes with you to maximize those strengths in your academic and career choices.
