Verifying Your Prerequisites

In order to verify that you've completed the pre-requisites, we'll need a record of this on file. Depending on where you completed the pre-req, here's what you need to do:

 

I completed my pre-req at Rio Salado College...


You're all set. If you completed the prerequisite requirements at Rio, you're ready to register today!

Note: Students who took the placement exam prior to February 12, 2008 and wish to register for a Math, Reading or English course for which the placement exam is required will need to call 480-517-8540 to register.

I completed my pre-req at another Maricopa Community College...


Log into my.maricopa.edu.
First-time users: click here.

Under Academics, choose 'Official Transcript.' You will need to send your transcript from the Maricopa Community College where you completed the prerequisite to Rio Salado. There is a 24-hour period before you will be able to register for the course requiring the pre-req.

Example: You took ENG101 at another Maricopa Community College, but you've decided to take ENG102 online at Rio to save time. In order to register, you have to transfer the course to Rio by sending us an Official Transcript. The automated system on my.maricopa.edu will allow you to do this free of charge.

Placement exams taken within the Maricopa Community College District are in our student information system - you do not need to send us these placement exam scores to register.

Note: Students who took the placement exam prior to February 12, 2008 and wish to register for a Math, Reading or English course for which the placement exam is required will need to call 480-517-8540 to register.

I completed my pre-req at a different college/university...

I have other documentation (such as a teaching certification) required for Prerequisite Verification…
