Rio Salado and the Maricopa Community Colleges will be closed Tuesday, Nov. 11, in observance of Veterans Day. Normal business hours will resume Wednesday, Nov. 12.

We are committed to serving veterans and their families, and we honor your service. We hope you'll let us serve you by taking advantage of Rio Salado's Military Advisement and the East Valley Veterans Education Center, which are designed to help you make the most of your higher education experience.

All ten Maricopa Community Colleges have been designated as 2015 Military Friendly Schools® by Victory Media. Each year, more than 10,000 VA-approved schools nationwide are surveyed. The list informs military students about the veteran experience based on peer reviews from current students. This is the seventh consecutive year Rio Salado has been acknowledged.

We hope you and your family enjoy this Veterans Day. Here's a list of Maricopa Community Colleges events to help you celebrate.
