NAU Representative On Site at Cafe at Rio Thursdays Throughout September

NAU Transfer Specialist Erica Collins typically meets with Rio Salado College students in the Academic Advisement office on Thursdays. Throughout September, she is taking it to the people by setting up near the CafĂ© at Rio every Thursday from 11 a.m. until noon.  Rio students and staff, as well as District Office staff and the general public are encouraged to stop by and discuss how to best transfer Maricopa coursework into an NAU upper division program.

NAU offers a number of programs which allow Maricopa County Community College District students to transfer up to 90 credits. This means students can complete three years of a four-year degree at MCCCD tuition rates. Many NAU programs are available online, so in some cases Rio Salado students can complete an entire degree program from home!

Students who prefer to sit down and talk to Erica individually, can still make an appointment to see her in the Academic Advisement office Thursdays before or after her Cafe at Rio visit. Call, email or stop by Academic Advisement to make an appointment with Erica, or to speak to a Rio advisor about a class or program anytime!
