I found Rio Salado college a very affordable way to get my associates degree. The online format is very flexible and easy to follow. Most instructors provide great feedback and timely communication. The text book saving program really helps with finance... Read More as well. Financial aid and academic advisers are always available.They have several different testing centers so there's usually something close to home. All of the testing centers are clean and well appointed. The disability resource staffVery helpful. I have used the tutoring center several times and was able to get help on a walk-in basis.
I transferred my credits via a University Partnership that allowed me to transfer 90 credits to Northcentral University instead of the usual 60. Rio Salado is a good way to go. If I had to do my schooling all over again, I would still stick with this... Read More school and its partnership with Northcentral. Toward the end of my time as I got to the end of my schooling, though, the advisement department started getting not so good. Trying to register for the right classes became a nightmare - I had to argue with people in advisement over whether or not a class existed (it did). Their teaching practicum outreach was also not enjoyable, as it took them months to place you when I could have just done it myself and was not allowed to. The low cost made the hassles worth it, but toward the end, I was really getting frustrated with the practicum outreach and advisement.
