Concurrent Enrollment

Start college early by taking classes with Rio Salado College. You may be eligible to earn high school and college credit when you complete concurrent enrollment classes.

You can take transfer general education classes online to fulfill your lower-division general education requirements for an associate degree. Then, you can transfer those credits to complete your bachelor’s degree.

Meet with your high school prior to enrolling to learn if the courses you choose will satisfy high school graduation requirements. 

Students should contact their high school to see if they can use their concurrent enrollment college classes to satisfy high school requirements. For example, some students have been able to take ENG101 and ENG102 through Rio Salado College and transfer that credit back to their high school, eliminating the need for them to complete high school Senior English.
