Rio Salado College Reviews
I’m currently working on an associates degree for mobile application development. The classes have been challenging but the teachers are incredibly accessible. Any question you might have gets answered quickly. As a full time student, parent of two children under three, while working full time is difficult, the faculty do everything they can to help. I would recommend Rio Salado to anyone!
I chose Rio Salado College because I was able to take my lower level Education classes there before I transfer to a college for student teaching. The professors are all very good, but the classes are very repetitive. Curriculum could be addressed so that there was not so much overlap. In addition, it is very hard for a working student to speak to a counselor. You must leave a message, to be returned later. It is usually not possible for me to answer the phone when I am at work, so it sometimes takes days to resolve an issue.
Rio Salado College is one of the original online colleges offered to the Phoenix area. Although during the summer they have difficult office hours to work with, their website is self serving and easy to navigate. You can take a full online course or keep it low key and take just a few. This college makes getting life through the summer manageable while taking a few side classes.
