Admissions and Recruitment

Admissions Policies

RCC's admissions policy is to admit students 18 and older and students 16 and 17 years of age who have a High School Diploma or GED or who place into college level reading and writing. The college reserves the right to approve or deny the request for enrollment by underage students.

If you are under 16 years old without a High School Diploma or GED, you must complete additional steps to determine your acceptance status. This is a process for underage students interested in taking RCC credit courses on-campus or online.

Admission Policy

Students 18 years and older may be admitted to RCC. Students under the age of 18 who have graduated from high school or completed a GED® may be admitted. 

Questions may be directed to the Admission Coaches at [email protected].

Enrollment limitations

The college may restrict enrollment in a class or program due to limited space, staff or equipment. Enrollment also is limited for some programs or classes due to special admission requirements such as minimum age, safety issues or criminal background.

Special Admissions Programs

Apprenticeship, Dental Assistant, Emergency Medical Services, Human Services, Massage Therapy, Medical Administrative Assistant, Medical Assistant, Nursing, Paramedicine, Pharmacy Technician, Phlebotomy, Practical Nursing, and Sterile Processing Technician have their own applications and special admissions requirements.
