Tucked in the hills of Southeastern Ohio, Rio Grande is the nation’s only combined public community college and private university. Classes are smaller here. Professors are not just educators–they are your mentors. They will be guiding you throughout your time at Rio, and supporting you after, to find ultimate success.

With over 70 degree and certificate programs, Rio offers something for everyone. Here is where you start a new journey or develop the tools to equip you for the future.

Unsure of where you want to go? We understand that too. The Rio Family is filled with diverse, friendly people who are committed to empowering you. We know sometimes you need to explore to find what fits best for you. So, even if you are unsure about which path to choose, you’ll find a welcoming place.
