Before you can get a Student Agreement Form, you must complete a Transcript Evaluation Request Form. Once all prior credit has been evaluated towards a degree program offered by Rio Salado College, you will be contacted by a Military Advisor to your student email. We will go over remaining course selections and results of your evaluation. Once completed, a copy of the SAF is sent to you as a courtesy via E-mail so that you can use it as a guide when selecting courses toward your academic program.

For GoArmyEd students a copy will be uploaded to GoArmyEd to be posted on the portal. You will be required to show your SAF to your education office and or sign, then upload your digital signed copy to the portal as well. Failure to complete this task may result in a flag on your account holding you from enrollment until you have a SAF on file. This process ranges from 5-7 business days once submitted to GoArmyEd.
