A world of opportunities for international students

Most of our students transfer to Arizona State University, University of Arizona, or Northern Arizona University to complete a four-year bachelor's degree. But you’re not limited to Arizona schools. In fact, CGCC credits are transferable to most public and private universities throughout the United States.
