Cochise College Benson Center

Cochise College was one of the first community colleges in Arizona. Today, we provide high-quality associate's-level education, professional development and workforce training to about 14,000 students across Cochise and Santa Cruz counties each year.

Our associate of arts, associate of business, associate of science, and associate of general studies degrees are designed so you can transfer seamlessly to a university. 

Our technical certificates and associate of applied science degrees let you upgrade your skills and prepare you to enter the workforce right away.

The Benson Center opened in August 2000 and has two computer labs, a virtual library, four articulated classrooms that together can accommodate up to 200, a distance learning classroom, and a science lab/art room.

The center serves students with traditional college courses, adult education and personal interest classes. A full-time staff provides placement assessment, GED testing, advising, admissions, registration and financial aid. 

The Benson Center has rooms available to rent for meetings and special events. Call for rates and availability.
