The first step in earning the college credits for these classes is to be admitted at Rio Salado.  This can be done by clicking here  Rio Salado Dual Enrollment.  If you took a Rio Salado Dual Enrollment course last school year you do not need to repeat this step... you are good to enroll in the course section that will be given to you by your teacher in the first week of school.  If you have issues or concerns with the admissions process a representative from Rio Salado will be available Monday August 5th at Open House to help you get admitted.
