CAC offering new business hours to accommodate students, maximize efficiency

(The updated news release includes services at the Corporate and Florence centers, Computer Lab (0100) times at the Signal Peak Campus, and extended hours for the Learning Center at the Maricopa Campus)

PINAL COUNTY, Ariz. - Central Arizona College is creating opportunities for students to tap into services throughout the evening hours while implementing its cost containment strategy.

"Central Arizona College continues to maximize its resources to provide critical services to students while maintaining its strategy of cost containment for Pinal County taxpayers," Dr. Doris Helmich, president/CEO, said. "A challenge went out to the faculty and staff to become creative on how to provide the services students expect while also being responsible to the taxpayer by reducing costs."

CAC shifted to a year-round, four-day week (8 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday through Thursday), closing on Fridays to reduce utility costs; however services for tutoring, testing, advising and the library will run into the early evening hours Monday through Thursday giving students an opportunity to use services into the evening.

Online services are available 24/7 for registration, financial aid, tutoring and the library.
