The Benefits of Having a College Degree 

In today's economy, higher education is no longer a luxury for the privileged few, but a necessity for individual economic opportunity and America's competitiveness in the global economy.

If you’ve been weighing your options, now may be the pivotal moment that takes you to the next level! 

The University of Arizona Global Campus (UAGC) recently launched an inaugural full-program scholarship opportunity* with Rio Salado Community College, offering an extraordinary opportunity for Rio alumni, faculty, and staff to apply for a degree offered in programs** through UAGC’s Forbes School of Business and Technology® or the College of Arts and Sciences.
