Learn About Block Calendar & Register for Classes

If you plan to earn a degree or certificate at Rio Salado College, you must register for classes and choose a start date that will determine your Block Calendar. This video explains how the Block Calendar works.

The VA determines monthly payment benefits based on total credits and length of courses. To maximize your financial benefit, we recommend that you do not stagger your course start dates.

For example, a student attending full time should take a total of 12 credit hours in the 14-week format and have all courses start on the same day. Adhering to this schedule will allow a 2 week break before the next semester block starts.

Block Calendar Auto Drop

Our system will auto-drop any class that is set to start or end outside of your assigned block.
