From when Rio’s closed for the holidays to when you need to file for financial aid, here’s all the dates and deadlines information you need to know.
Students and business services will be closed at Rio on the following days. During college closures, students are encouraged to use self-serve enrollment options at My.maricopa.edu.
For more information on district-wide holidays and admission deadlines, check out the Maricopa County Academic Calendar.
Deadlines are based on calendar days and begin with the first day of class. Deadlines that fall on a weekend or holiday advance to the next college work day.
Rio uses a flexible Block Calendar system that allows students to take classes throughout the year. With over 40 start dates, you can start your online classes as soon as next week!
If you need to withdrawal a class, you can find the information you need on our Refund Policy and Deadlines page.
Our Financial Aid Office has set priority deadlines for each semester block term. Make sure you determine your eligibility and submit the required information on or before the deadline so you don’t miss out on any potential financial aid awards.
If you have questions about enrolling or financial aid, our Success Coaches can help. They’re here to help you every step of the way.
AVAILABLE MON-FRI 7 A.M.-5 P.M. MST
