English, Math and Reading Placement
If you're taking English, math or reading courses, Rio Salado College offers five options for determining your course placement:
- Placement using the unweighted GPA on your high school transcript
- Placement with an ACT score
- Placement with a GED score
- Placement with SAT score
- Placement Testing
Note: You can submit college transcripts from prior college courses in English, math or reading to meet the prerequisite requirement in some classes. Learn about the Prerequisite Approval Process.
Submit Your Transcript
If you are using a previous college or university class to meet the placement requirements from outside the Maricopa Community Colleges network, submit unofficial transcripts along with the Prerequisite Verification Request Form.
