Rio Salado College “Dual Enrollment Program”
Many upper division Brophy courses are available for college credit through Rio Salado College via what is called their dual enrollment program
, which literally means that the student is dually enrolled both as a Brophy student and as a community college student. Certain Brophy courses qualify for both high school credit toward Brophy’s graduation requirement, and also Maricopa Community College credit through Rio Salado College. Students taking those Brophy courses who qualify for admission to the college and to the course can thus enroll in Rio Salado as a student, and register for an additional fee to get community college credit for the course. For example, a student can take Honors Chemistry at Brophy as a lab science credit, but if he qualifies through Rio Salado for the community college credit, he can pay and get four credits for Chem 130 (three credits) and the Chem 130 lab (one credit).
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.
