About RSC

Rio Salado College (RSC) East Valley in Mesa, Arizona, is one of many RSC campuses that provide basic learning programs.

Students can take the following types of courses: Adult Basic Education (ABE), English Language Acquisition for Adults (ELAA), and General Education Development (GED).

The ABE program features self-paced classes for those who did not graduate from high school, or those who need to learn the essential skills required for job placement or promotion.

The ELAA program is designed to help those who want to improve their English skills, and the GED program prepares students for taking and passing GED tests in various subject areas. In order to take the GED exams, individuals need to be at least 16 years old.

Other services offered by RSC include academic advising and counseling. These services can assist students with setting realistic academic and career goals, getting them ready for the workforce or for transition to higher learning institutions.

Advisors and counselors can even support students with any issues they might be experiencing, such as anxiety for test preparation, organizational skills, prioritizing their schedules, and self-motivation.

Enrollment applications to RSC can be submitted online along with financial aid forms, placement test results, and transcripts. Federal and private sources of financial aid are available to those who qualify. Applicants must fill out a FAFSA to determine eligibility. Residents of Maricopa County and the state of Arizona can obtain lower tuition rates.
