Master's Degree Pathways

Rio Salado College has established master's degree pathways in teacher education with Northcentral University, Plymouth State University and the University of Phoenix,  all regionally-accredited institutions of higher learning.

The following credit hours of Rio Salado College's state-approved Post-Baccalaureate Educator Preparation Program can be applied toward a master's degree:

  • Up to 18 credit hours can be applied toward the Northcentral University master's degree pathway.  Courses must not be older than 5 years to meet transfer policy.
  • 15 credit hours can be applied toward the Plymouth State University 33-hour master's degree program by submitting a portfolio representing some of your Post-Baccalaureate coursework.
  • Credits vary by degree option with the University of Phoenix.  
  1. If you transferred classes from a conferred bachelor’s degree into the Educator Preparation Post-Bacc program, you may use those credits in transfer to NCU’s Master’s programs.
  2. If you transferred classes from a conferred Master’s degree into the Educator Preparation 
    Post-Bacc program, you may not use those credits in transfer to NCU.
  3. If you transferred classes from an institution at 400-500 level without a conferred degree, it is up to the discretion of NCU to accept classes in transfer.
