Concurrent Enrollment

Start college early by taking classes from Rio Salado College this summer.  You can take transferable general education  classes online to fulfill lower-division general education requirements for an associate degree and transfer those credits to complete your Bachelor’s degree.

Upon approval from your high school, you may earn both high school and college credit when you complete the class. To participate you will need prior approval from your high school and must complete a special admission form.

Benefits of Concurrent Enrollment Classes

  • Access to Rio’s student services including advising, tutoring, and more!
  • Earn college and high school credit simultaneously
  • Accelerate your college career while in high school
  • Online classes are affordable (and close to home!)
  • College credits transfer to most four-year universities
