High School Equivalency (HSE) Online Preparation Classes

Rio Salado College's College Bridge Pathways offers online high school equivalency (HSE) classes to prepare students for the HSE test. These classes prepare students for the four subject areas of the test: Science, Social Studies, Mathematical Reasoning, and Reasoning Through Language Arts.

The online HSE classes are open to all students regardless of residency status, and are taught in English.

Registration: There is a $125 charge for the online preparation class, plus the cost of purchasing the access code to the online learning system that the class is using: MyFoundationsLab. Completion of an online HSE prep course of study does not guarantee that the student will pass the HSE test.

Required Materials

The purchase of an access code is required in order to be able to log on to MyFoundationsLab. The cost of the access code is approximately $82 and can be purchased from the Rio Salado College Bookstore. To obtain your access code, please contact the bookstore at 480-517-8710.

Registration and access code fees are subject to change.

Class Information

MyFoundationsLab is accessed through the Rio Salado College portal called RioLearn. Once enrolled in the online HSE prep class, students will have access to RioLearn for a period of fourteen weeks. Students are expected to complete all prescribed coursework within that fourteen-week period. Students who have not completed the class within the 14-week period may re-enroll for another fourteen-week period upon payment of an additional $125 to continue the class. By re-enrolling, students will have access to an additional twelve weeks of MyFoundationsLab at no extra cost.
