Prerequisite Approval Process

Student on cellphone

Would you like to enroll for a course that has a prerequisite? It’s simple to do.

Individuals who have successfully completed courses at other U.S. regionally accredited universities and colleges and/or ACE evaluated programs and credits who would like to enroll in a Rio Salado class which requires a prerequisite must request an evaluation of these courses. The purpose of this is to establish equivalency with Rio Salado College. Coursework from other institutions may be considered for evaluation on a case-by-case basis.

Please submit a request using one of the links below. 

Prerequisite Verification Request Form (In-State AZ) (Dynamic Form)
Prerequisite Verification Request Form (Out-of-State) (Dynamic Form)

NOTE: Individuals who would like to enroll in a course that requires provisional or standard elementary, secondary, or special education teaching certificate will need to send a copy of their teaching certification to Rio Salado by using the In-State AZ link above.

Upon completion of the prerequisite verification you will be notified and enrolled (if it is determined that you have satisfied the perquisite requirement). Typically requests are processed within a day however during busy times processing time can take up to 72 hours.
