Distance Learning for the Incarcerated Rio Salado College… “the college within everyone’s reach” http://www.riosalado.edu/ci/programs/palumni/ [email protected]

Dear Prospective Student Welcome to Rio Salado College, the “college within everyone’s reach!” This packet is designed to provide you with the information needed to make an informed decision about your educational future as a “distance learning” student. This packet contains the information and forms necessary to facilitate the path towards your academic goals. Distance Learning gives you the opportunity to take transferable college classes when, where and how you want in the prison setting. Classes like business, English, math, science, sociology, psychology, and more begin every two weeks all year long; so, registration is ongoing. And, they’re open to incarcerated students who have been approved by Department of Corrections (DOC). This is a great way to complete your general education requirements. Classes end 13 weeks after you begin. However, you may request to accelerate your completion time to as few as six weeks, with instructor approval. Classes are offered to you in a print based or mixed media format (possible video, CD-ROM, DVD or audiocassette accompaniment). Students communicate with their instructors through the mail. Homework assignments are submitted via regular mail. If you mail material to the college, you must provide adequate postage. The college will refuse mail with insufficient postage, therefore your work may not be processed. Students that have Rio Salado College educational offices on-site may send their course materials via that office. In addition, Rio Salado offers student support through academic advising; on-site advisors are available at ASPC-Lewis and ASPC-Perryville. You may meet with an advisor, by appointment, at the unit if available at your Complex. All other students may contact the advisor via mail. You may select from over 100 courses, but all costs incurred will be your responsibility. You may be able to get assistance from family or obtain a scholarship if available, but the Department of Corrections does not financially support this program. Should you choose the path of becoming a Rio Salado Distance Learning student, you will encounter special challenges, but we will work with you to provide the opportunity for your positive educational growth. Remember that your success is dependent upon Compliance with DOC policy Adherence to College guidelines Your responsibility and commitment As a Distance Learning student, you must structure your academic environment. Discipline, good study habits, and the ability to focus regardless of those around you are essential to your success. Jo Jorgenson Associate Dean of Applied Programs

If the test request is not submitted you will not receive your exams, which may result in a failing grade. 3. To insure the integrity of the test, advise your proctor that the pre-paid testing envelope MUST be used. Any deviation may result in tests not being accepted by Rio Salado College. The test request should be submitted during the first week of your course in order to allow time for the testing center to process this request and the return of the tests to your proctor. It will be your responsibility to contact your assigned proctor at the time scheduled for your exams.

13.B DEGREE OR CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS AND CODES Description of Educational Programs LIST 1 Arizona General Education (AGEC) (7157) is a 35-semester credit block of lower division general education courses designed for students transferring to public universities. Certified completion of the block satisfies admission requirements to an Arizona university and will fulfill all lower division general education requirements for the majors with which each block articulates. There are three AGEC blocks: AGEC-A, intended for liberal arts and other majors; AGEC-B, intended for business majors; and AGEC-S, intended for majors with more stringent mathematics and mathematics-based science requirements. Associate of Arts Degree (AA) degree includes AGEC-A and transfers as a block without loss of credit to Arizona public universities. There are two pathways: the AA-GR (General Requirements) (8100) is designed for students who may or may not know their major or university and plan to transfer into majors that articulate with the AA-GR pathway; the AA-SR (Special Requirements) (8300) is designed for students who know their major but have not decided on their university and who plan to transfer into majors that articulate with the AA-SR pathway. All credits used to satisfy the AA-SR or AAGR will apply to the university graduation requirements of the university major for which the AA is designed. Associate of Arts Transfer Partnership Degree (AA-TPD) (See List 5) is designed to meet the needs of students who have identified Business, Psychology, Elementary, Education, or Social Work as their major and are transferring to Arizona State University Main or Arizona State University West. Associate of Science (AS) degree includes AGEC-S and is designed for students who plan to transfer to an Arizona university, want to satisfy requirements in majors with more stringent mathematics and mathematics-based science requirements, and plan to transfer into majors that articulate with one of the two AS pathways: the AS-GR (General Requirements) (8700) and AS-SR (Special Requirements) (8500). Associate of Business (ABUS) degree includes AGEC-B and is designed for all business majors except Accounting and computer Information Systems (Subject to change in the future-consult with your academic advisor.) ABUS transfers as a block without loss of credit to Arizona public universities. All credits used to satisfy the ABUS will apply to university graduation requirements of the university major for which the ABUS was designed. (Special Requirements) (8800) – (General Requirements) (8900) Associate of General Studies Degree (AGS) (2000) is designed for students whose educational goals require flexibility OR who choose to take courses which may later apply toward a degree. Associate of Applied Science Degree (AAS) (See List 2) is designed for students who plan to complete a specified occupational program. Certificate of Completion (CCL) (See List 3) is designed for students who plan to complete an occupational program requiring fewer credit units than a degree.
