    She is rich as well as I

    Hi,

    *self-made*

    - She is rich as well as I.

    I would like to ask if we can use "as well as I" instead of "me"?

    Thanks.

    No.

    She is as rich as I (strictly grammatical).
    She is as rich as me (common).
    She is as rich as I am (the safest choice).

    'She, as well as I, is rich.'
    I think it is uncommon, yet it might be the OP's intended meaning, but I am not a teacher.

    That would be highly unusual.

    You can have: She and I are rich. or Both she and I are rich.
    I am not a teacher.

    I think 'She is rich, as am I' might also be the OP's intended meaning, but I am not a teacher.

    Hi Mike.

    Is the first "as" an adverb and the second one a preposition in your example sentences?
    I'm not a teacher and I'm not a native speaker of English.

    Re: She is rich as well as I

    It should be a conjunction, but it is used as a preposition in #2.
