Transfer to Northcentral University (NCU)

Ready to move on to a four-year institution? We've partnered with Northcentral University to make transferring your Rio Salado credits a smooth process.


At Rio Salado College, we believe that every student's education should be tailored to their own needs and ambitions. Learning should be a personalized experience and not a one-size-fits-all process. That's why we've partnered with Northcentral University (NCU). Founded in 1996, NCU is fully online and designed to meet your needs and expectations. 

At NCU, students learn in a unique one-on-one format with 100% doctoral faculty members. You won't have to worry about coordinating schedules for group projects—at NCU, YOU are the group. Accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission, NCU's School of Undergraduate Studies provides quality education with maximum flexibility. With weekly start dates and no entrance exam requirements, you can start learning at NCU as soon as next week!

If you’re ready, you can even enroll in NCU’s Fast Forward track, which allows you to advance from your associate degree through your bachelor’s and master’s degrees — months faster and with lower tuition expenses.

We've partnered with NCU to make the process of transferring your credits as stress free as possible. With the expert guidance of your Success Coach and our partner program pathways, you won't have to worry about wasting time or money on classes that won't transfer.
