Prerequisite Approval Process

Student on cellphone

Would you like to enroll for a course that has a prerequisite? It’s simple to do.

Individuals who have successfully completed courses at other U.S. regionally accredited universities and colleges and/or ACE evaluated programs and credits who would like to enroll in a Rio Salado class which requires a prerequisite must request an evaluation of these courses. The purpose of this is to establish equivalency with Rio Salado College. Coursework from other institutions may be considered for evaluation on a case-by-case basis.

Individuals who would like to enroll in a course that requires provisional or standard elementary, secondary, or special education teaching certificate will need to send a copy of their teaching certification to Rio Salado.

Please submit a request using one of the links below.
