Evaluation of Prior Credits

Rio Salado accepts in transfer credits from U.S. regionally accredited colleges and universities and ACE-evaluated credits (this includes military credit, CLEP and DANTES). Keep in mind that not all credit accepted in transfer always applies to your degree/certificate/program. Here's the difference:

  • Accepted - the credit is accepted as transfer credit at Rio Salado
  • Applied - the credit is accepted and applied to your degree/cert/program at Rio Salado

If you have transfer credit and have or will be completing a 3-credit course with Rio Salado, we'd be happy to evaluate your transfer credits toward your academic goal at Rio Salado. Just fill out a Transcript Evaluation Request Form and send it to us.

If you are interested in Educator Preparation Program and would like an evaluation of prior education courses and/or content area courses please use the Transcript Evaluation Form for Educator Preparation Program.

To learn more about the transfer of credit please review the Maricopa Community College District Administrative Regulation.
