Dual Enrollment Program
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 courses allow high school students the ability to earn college credit and high school credit simultaneously.But that's not the only benefit of dual enrollment:
- Easy transfer to many universities
- Save money
- Finish college faster
- Eliminate duplication of coursework during the early years of college
- Teachers are dual enrollment certified
