How to Enroll

he Incarcerated Re-Entry-Distance Learning (IRE-DL) team has partnerships with most of the facilities across Arizona. Our forms can be provided to potential students in the prison library or education staff. The first step for incarcerated students is to contact the educational representative at the facility to ensure you follow prison policy regarding taking classes. For students located out side of Arizona, the IRE team will need a contact at the facility to verify the student can take a class and to verify how the facility wants materials mailed to the student.

For students we encourage the AA and SAGEC programs. Please review the IRE Program Check Sheets. When a program is selected, IRE-DL staff can continue to guide the student and FERPA contact in enrollment in the next course in sequence to complete the program.
