I like the fact the online classes allow me to work around my schedule.
College Freshman 2013-10-31T06:07:58Z
There is no interaction between students, my classes are online.
College Freshman 2013-10-31T06:03:18Z
The online classes are convenient but I would like there to be more of an option for in person classes for some of the courses.

It was kind of hard for me to do all the work because it was an online course and you have to be an extremely responsible person to keep up with online classes. Or be on the computer all the time.

It mostly consists of online classes where students across the globe can assist the college. They have great advisers who place in you classes accordingly with your future goals. Also Incarcerated students can get their college credits through "Print Based" courses.

My adviser has made out a semester by semester plan with the classes I will be taking until I complete an Associates in Creative Writing. Rio Salado is an online college and is perfect for me. I can work on my school work any day of the week and I always have the necessary material to come up with solutions. They too offer tutoring online and in person, its great!

The student body is very diverse. Many people of all different ages and stages. The "normal" college I would guess has many more young students. Rio Salado has students from all age ranges and they are good people ready to help those who need it.
College Junior 2013-09-22T00:38:22Z
The schedules are very flexible and the classes always have room for more students. The advising staff always helps with guidance and planning, and then enrollment. It is so easy to succeed with a team of people always willing to help.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The financial aid office has fast response to questions, both in person and over the phone. The FA process is not without bumps in the road. However, the staff is always knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Students would not be able to complete college without the help of these great staffers.

The resources are great! They provide me with all of the materials I need to ensure me with a better education. The resources on campus are always open in case a student needs assistance.

Desert Vista is a very clean campus and has many aspects that make it unique form all of the other schools. Desert Vista makes me want to get up and go to school every day because it is so beaitiful and spacious. There are over 1000 students who attend this school so it is very easy to make friends. Our school is very spirited and we have a lot of pride for the Thunder. I love how they offer many college credit classes and do everything they can to make sure that all of the students are ahead of the game.

The computer networks at Desert Vista are quite helpful. The school provides all students with access to a computer whenever it is neccesary. Our school contains three computer labs, a library full of them, as well as netbooks that can be transported throughout the whole campus. All of the computers are linked to a printer and it is very easy to print out one to multiple papers at one time. They do their best to make is so we can print the materials we need as soon as possible. Our network is speedy and it functions and cooperates every single day, with the exceptions of one or two lags depending on how many users are using the school wifi. There is no need for a perosnal computer at Desert Vista, they provide students with over 300 computers to choose from.

Desert Vista High School provides students with many courses to pick from. Many of these courses can be taken online, and I have found that to be very helpful throughout the years. I have taken online government and online Public Speaking, and I must admit, it was completely different from your typical classroom experience. Although I have found online classes to be extremly helpful for me to recieve all credits needed, it was harder for me to understand and really soak myself in the lessons being taught. I have found online classes to be more difficult for me because if I have a question I cannot simply raise my hand to ask the teacher a question, or turn my head to ask one of my peers. An online class is not for you if you want to have a relationship with your teacher. I have also found that online classes feel more easilly to set aside, and that the classes in the classroom present more motivation for me to get my work done.

the main campus offers to ship your books to a location near you so you can pick it up from there and don't have to pay shipping fees or drive a long way to the main campus just to pick up the books you need.

previously I graduated and was unable to find a job in that field. I went to rio salado to see other opportunities that could lead me to a better job. I can say they have the best career center, and all the staff members are very helpful. I even received a call from an academic advisor who enrolled me into the business program.
College Senior 2013-09-03T20:27:56Z
i have attended other colleges that are not as awesome as rio salado. this is one of the best colleges, most convenient in everything. I get to study on my own and attend class from home. I love it!

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Tuition is standard I did not receive any aid though because I didn't qualify

I chose this school because it was a 15 month program but by the time I was accepted and enrolled they changed it to an 18 month program, then half way through our program they added another month to it. I was very disappointed and couldn't believe a school was even allowed to do that.
College Senior 2013-08-19T07:26:04Z
Although the administration is very unorganized a lot of the instructors works really hard to teach us well and give us good experiences.
College Senior 2013-08-19T07:24:16Z
Rio salado re did their dental hygiene program and we are the first class going through it. The school is very unorganized and has had many changes in administration just in the past 10 months i have been attending.
College Junior 2013-08-11T23:27:23Z
All testing answers are graded instantly. The network is fast and tech support helps you if you are having issues. The tutoring is very limited and some of my classes do not have any tutors available. I am not aware if there is an environment which you can go to to print or submit assignments.
College Junior 2013-08-11T23:22:04Z
The process for registration is super easy and if a class is closed they open a new section. The instructors are there to answer any questions and the assess ability to the instructors is fast and they are always available online. My only criticism is that the ground facility is small and tutoring is limited
Sorry, there are no reviews.
