Dual Enrollment Program
Rio Salado Dual Enrollment Tuition Assistance for the 2023 – 2024 school year is now accepting applications. APPLICATIONS ARE DUE MAY 31, 2023
Students who have never taken a class for dual credit must enroll with Rio Salado before applying.
This means that the student has been admitted to Rio Salado College, submitted a school picture ID, a copy of their Birth Certificate, completed the Parent's Consent Form, uploaded a high school transcript showing 2.6+GPA [Juniors & Seniors], or complete placement testing for all other grade levels BEFORE applying for Tuition Assistance. (Students can access their transcript with their GPA in StudentVue under Documents.)
New this year: There is no longer a "save progress" button, which means that students/families are encouraged to fully complete this application in one-sitting and have 45 minutes to do so.
Here is the link to Rio Salado's Dual Enrollment website with the application: https://www.riosalado.edu/start-rio/early-college/dual-enrollment/tuition-payments. The login information for this application is the student's full MEID@maricopa.edu and the password they created for their student account.
If you have any questions, please contact your school's Rio Salado Liaison or contact Rio Salado directly at (480) 517-8080.

Dual Enrollment Registration Instructions
College Placement Reading Test for Freshmen and Sophomores
Underclassmen planning on taking a Dual Enrollment course need to take the Reading Test from Rio Salado in order to complete their registration process. Originally, this test was going to be given to those students this spring; but due to COVID-19 that is not possible. However, Rio Salado College is offering an online test for students to take at home to fulfill this requirement.
Steps for students to complete:
- Begin the registration process at Rio. You need to be admitted to Rio Salado BEFORE you can take this test online.
- Students must complete the portion in order to receive their Maricopa Student ID number. This is an 8 digit number generated by Rio Salado. It is NOT their Corona del Sol school ID. They will also receive their MEID number. Please keep both numbers safe and secure.
- Students will select the Reading test.
