Python error 'No module named arcpy'

Hey folks,


New to python but not coding; I'm running the Python tutorial, Python for everyone, and outright have an error I can't seem to find a solution to. Using Python 2.7.10 I tried running the sample script and immediately got the 'No module named arcpy' error.


My path variables appear correct:

PYTHONPATH: C:\Python27\ArcGIS10.3\Lib\site-packages


My Desktop 10.x pth file:


C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.3\bin
C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.3\arcPy
C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.3\ArcToolBox\Scripts


I'm running Win 0S 7 Pro SP1 64-bit


The example script:

import arcpy  # script fails here
#set workspace
arcpy.env.workspace = r"C:\Student\PythEveryone10_1\RunningScripts\Oregon_Polk.gdb"

#set up a describe object for each fc in gdb
fcList = arcpy.ListFeatureClasses()
for fc in fcList:
    desc = arcpy.Describe(fc)

print "Script completed"   


Looking for any suggestions for troubleshooting. Thanks!


(Curtis Price added formatting and put the import arcpy that is failing at the top)
