Rio Salado College Reviews
Review Rio Salado College
Rio Salado College is a strictly online college that caters to those individuals that need to complete a few courses for a degree or simply want to learn. The benefit of attending an online college is the ease of accessibility for those that are employed full time and/or have children. I personally loved how it was not structured like a typical college with spring and fall semesters, rather it allowed individuals the opportunity to start a class on any Monday of any week. I would like to see more involvement between Professors and students, especially regarding assignments and the desired requirements for each assignment. There seems to be a disconnection that does not allow students the chance to speak to their respective Professor unless done through email which entails the Professor to interpret what the student is trying to ask or convey.
My overall experience has been great! The class schedules are flexible, they have weekly start dates and since they are online classes I can choose what time I want to work on a certain subject. I love not being locked down to a set schedule and because of this you can usually work ahead and complete assignments early. On another note if you are falling behind you can request extensions and teachers are flexible with this. I am a single working mom so attending a standard college where you have to attend the classes in person just was not feasible for me. Rio Salado's online courses has made getting my degree a posibility!
Everytime I signed up for classes at this school I had to jump through hoops to get anything done. Their staff is not very knowledgeable and does not communicate very well from department to department. While it is convenient to take online classes, it is not convenient if you are using student loans for financial aid. I have been dropped several times from classes because of non communication between departments. I do not recommend this school.
