Partnership with StraighterLine

Rio Salado College has partnered with StraighterLine, an online course provider evaluated by the American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE Credit).

With online tutoring, advisement services, and professor-led courses, StraighterLine is an excellent educational partner for Rio Salado students.

Classes at $99 per month

The StraighterLine logo

StraighterLine was “founded as a solution to the rising cost of college.” For a $99 a month subscription fee (additional course and textbook fees will vary), students can take a variety of courses, which can be transferred to Rio Salado's various Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degrees or the Associate in General Studies (AGS) degree.

StraighterLine courses fall under the Rio Salado Credit for Prior Learning umbrella. As such, students can transfer a maximum of 30 credits.  Even though these credits may not transfer directly to Arizona’s three state universities, they are likely to be accepted by many of the other Rio Salado and Maricopa Community Colleges’ 40+ university partners.

Getting Started

It’s easy! First, check in with a Rio Salado advisor to determine your degree requirements and to see if StraighterLine is a good fit for you and your goals.  You can also contact StraighterLine directly for more information or to enroll in classes.

After your courses are completed, submit a request to have your transcript sent to Rio Salado. When all remaining requirements are fulfilled, you can apply for graduation.
