Arizona Distance Education & Near You Network

 
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 Near You Network locations 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 Near You Network is committed to serving our students, staff, and community at our statewide locations, even as classes remain in adjusted modalities for the Fall 2020 term as part of our COVID-19 mitigation procedures.
