Colleges in Arizona: Universities, Trade and Technical Schools

Arizona Colleges Summary

Arizona has more than 100 adult education institutions with a total enrollment of more than 400,000 students. This represents about 8.5% of the state's population, causing Arizona to rank 3rd in enrollment percentage across all the US States. The most well known colleges are the University of Arizona and Arizona State University. Collectively these schools have almost 90,000 students.

Arizona also has the 3rd highest rank in terms of colleges and career training institutions which are for profit, with more than 40% of the schools being for profit. As a result the majority of the schools do not require SAT scores (less than 10 percent), causing Arizona to rank 2nd lowest in this category across all states and the district of Columbia.

The Arizona Department of Education is located at 1535 West Jefferson Street in Phoenix. You can find the web site address at: http://www.ade.az.gov/.
