The Admissions Officer or designee is the designated authority and responsible for the admission process. The Admissions Officer, or designee, makes final admission determinations. Current admission procedures are published in the most recent version of the college catalog, schedule of classes, and Rogue Community College website.

All prospective students are required to complete a Rogue Community College (RCC) application for admission either online or in-person. In general, to qualify for admission a person must:

  1. Graduate from high school or complete a GED®, or
  2. Be an accelerated high school student with special approval from the school principal, or
  3. Be over 18 years of age and deemed capable of profiting from the instructional program.

The Admissions Officer shall establish procedures regarding admission and registration of high school (16-17 years old) and for exceptions to admit younger students (under 16 years of age), and procedures regarding compliance with statutory and regulatory criteria for concurrent enrollment. (See AP 5011 – Admissions and Concurrent Enrollment of High School and Other Young Students.)

The Admissions Officer or designee is responsible for evaluating the validity of a student's high school completion if the college or the United States Department of Education has reason to believe that the high school diploma is not valid or was not obtained from an entity that provides secondary school education.

All information provided by the applicant on the admission application must be true and accurate as required by law. A student who knowingly falsifies any information required on the Rogue Community College application, or other college documents, is subject to disciplinary action.

Admission to limited entry or restricted enrollment programs may be limited and may have separate application procedures and requirements. Programs may require the completion of a program admission application as well as the RCC admission application. Current program admission requirements are published by the respective program and made available on the college website. The Admission criteria, process and application for specialized programs are valid for the current application cycle only.

Nonresident students who apply shall pay out-of-state tuition fees until Oregon residency has been established.

Rogue Community College is authorized to offer educational opportunity to international students. See AP 5012 International Students.
