Arizona Distance Education

 
Yuma Campus
Through its land-grant mission, the University of Arizona is committed to serving the state of Arizona and students who seek to earn a high-quality degree from its flagship university. Programs at our distance sites offer a mix of face-to-face, hybrid, and fully online courses to meet the demands of students, giving them direct access to on-site faculty, advisors, program directors, and support staff. Through partnerships with local community colleges, students can earn a bachelor’s or graduate degree without leaving their community.
The University of Arizona Distance Network is committed to serving our students, staff, and community at our statewide locations, even as classes move to an online modality for the remainder of the spring semester as part of our COVID-19 mitigation procedures.
