Rio Salado College is committed to keeping college accessible by offering you affordable tuition, capping your tuition, and providing credit for your prior learning.
Tuition is just $250 per credit hour for the first 11 credits a semester; if you take 11 or more credits, we've capped our tuition at $2,750 per semester. This is less than the amount you would have paid for 12 credits.
Please note: some classes require lab kits or proctored exams, which may require you to pay an additional fee.
