Introducing RioNational

Rio Salado College is proud to announce the official launch of RioNational, the college’s national division. RioNational focuses on leveraging the strength of the college’s existing programs and flexible start dates to make higher education accessible to parts of the nation where online programs are unavailable or cost prohibitive.

Rio Salado has made changes to better serve our students nationwide as America's Online Community College™, in part, by:

  • Adjusting the out-of-state tuition rate
  • Launching a new website for RioNational:
  • Assembling a team of Success Coaches with expertise in enrollment, academic advising and financial aid
  • Launching targeted marketing campaigns based on student personas

Whether students are starting college for the first time or picking up where they left off, RioNational meets students where they are and takes them where they want to go. Programs are personalized to student needs and aligned with employment opportunities upon completion.
