Rio Salado College “Dual Enrollment Program”
Although it may vary from year to year, typically a number of upper-division Brophy courses are available for college credit through Rio Salado College via what is called its dual enrollment program
, which means that the student is dually enrolled as a Brophy student, and also as a community college student. Students taking one or more of these upper-division Brophy courses, who qualify for admission to the college and who are willing to pay the Rio Salado course fee, can enroll in Rio Salado and get community college credit for the course. For example, a student taking Honors Chemistry at Brophy as a lab science credit, can also enroll through Rio Salado for the community college credit (provided he qualifies and pays the necessary course fee). As a result of his dual enrollment, he will get four college credits (three credits for Chem 130 and one credit for the Chem 130 lab).
Once a student is registered, he will be in Rio Salado’s database as a student, and will be able to access official transcripts upon completion of courses.
