My classes at Rio were not the first online classes I've taken but are definitely the worst. The instructors DO NOT care about you or your understanding of the course material. I cant stress this point enough! If you ask an instructor about something your having difficulty with they will just direct you to tutoring services. Another problem I had with Rio is that in none of my classes was there any instruction or any sort of 'lecture'. The Rio format goes directly into homework and you learn by doing wrong, correcting, doing wrong, correcting, doing right. Its an extremely frustrating method in my opinion. I would advise you attend any other community college. I attended Chandler Gilbert and Mesa Community and I found both to be excellent, online and off.

If I could give this school a 0 star rating I would! This has been the worst school ever. I applied as it was one of the Maricopa Community Colleges (something they should reconsider) and was able to sign up for some classes. I thought the online classes would be useful with my schedule. Well the first two semesters I enrolled in one class each, but had to drop as my work life was too tasking and I knew I did not have the time to put into the classes in order to be successful. The following year I was in a job that was much more flexible at the same company, so I enrolled in three courses. I started and they were the worst courses ever! No instructor guidance other that the little they write in the introductions, and the overall learning experience was horrible. So I decided I would not be successful at this college and dropped those courses as well. I went on to view my transcripts, they gave me all F's even though I dropped all the courses using the proper procedures. I called and went in to try and fix it, nothing and I have been in dispute ever since. They did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Now I am screwed. All the college courses I have completed through Maricopa's other colleges, all A's and B's and I had two C's back in the day. I am a semester away from completing my ABUS and trying to get into colleges and because of Rio I have lost the ability to get into any decent college. Thank you Rio for being by far the worst school in existence. Biggest mistake of my life was having anything to do with your school.

Wish I could give this school less than one star. From the start, it has been constant problems with Rio Salado. Needed to submit my CA Driver's License THREE times because they claimed they never received it to be submitted for WUE tuition. Everytime I called to check to see if they had received my driver's license and I would always get transferred back and forth between offices to different people who always did not know the answer. And this was all before any of my classes even started. I was automatically dropped from a class for "not submitting the first assignment" by 3/14/14 when I was told the class did not start until 3/17/14. I better be getting refunded for the tuition I paid for that class. Never taking a class through them again!

This school financial department is absolutely clueless. No one ever knows what they are talking about. If you call you will never get the same answer twice. You will always receive misinformation. I have taken numerous online classes at different schools and this is by far the worst. As a matter of fact ALL of Maricopa Community Colleges are terrible. I have maybe had 3 good teachers in 4 years. Every aspect of their supposed "aid" is horrible. I cannot believe the constant struggle and battle that I deal with every single semester, and I use private loans not even financial aid. So considering I use my OWN money and I have no restrictions you would think they could get their act together. Nope! Beware. I would never advise anyone to deal with the troubles of these colleges. I would strongly recommend spending the money and going to a university.

This is the worst school in the East Valley by FAR!! I've attended both MCC and CGCC and they are both way, WAY better than Rio Salado. The teachers at Rio are basically paid to do nothing. They let the lab software do all of the work and then they MIGHT check their emails once a week to respond to any questions you may have. And if you need any help from financial aid or admissions, forget it!! You'll sit on hold for an hour only to get an idiot who has no idea what they're talking about. This school is just THE WORST! I can't even stress that enough.
