Welcome to RCC

RCC is a regionally accredited, comprehensive, two-year public college serving Jackson and Josephine counties on three campuses:

  1. Redwood Campus (Grants Pass).
  2. Riverside Campus (Medford).
  3. Table Rock Campus (White City).

Other learning sites include the Small Business Development Center and Esther Bristol Education Center, the Illinois Valley Business Entrepreneurial and Illinois Valley Learning centers in Josephine County, and the Fire Science Center in Jackson County.

Authority and Governance

The College is one of 17 community colleges in the state, each independently governed by its own local Board of Education, and managed by the Department of Community Colleges and Workforce Development (CCWD) under the Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC) for the state of Oregon.

CCWD is granted legal authority for approval of courses and curricula through Chapter 589, Division 6 of Oregon Administrative Rules adopted by the State Board of Education under Chapter 341 of Oregon Revised Statutes.

The HECC and CCWD, in coordination with the State Board of Education are responsible for distribution of state aid, review and approval of new programs and courses, and governance rules for Oregon community colleges.

In addition, the Oregon Community College Association serves as liaison between the colleges, state legislators, and partners on issues from funding to legislative policy, special studies and reports.

Accreditation

www.roguecc.edu/Accreditation

RCC has been continuously affirmed for accreditation since 1971. It is accredited by the regional authority — Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). NWCCU is recognized by and accountable to the U.S. Department of Education. NWCCU establishes the standards and processes by which public and private colleges and universities in the region are evaluated every 3 to 4 years in a 7 year cycle to ensure student learning through quality education and overall college effectiveness. Accreditation also qualifies RCC for federal grants and other funding, including financial aid for students enrolled at the College.

Americans with Disabilities Act & Section 504

RCC does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admission to, access to, or operation of its instruction, programs, services or activities, or in its hiring and employment practices. The college provides reasonable accommodation to facilitate the participation of individuals with legally protected disabilities.

Budget

For information, visit www.roguecc.edu/Budget.

Campus Crime Awareness and Security

The safety of students, faculty, staff and guests is a top priority at RCC. Safety is a cooperative effort, and it is the responsibility of each individual to assure a safe campus. RCC prepares an annual security report to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act. Institutions of higher education are required to distribute to all current students, employees, and applicants for enrollment or employment two types of information: descriptions of policies related to campus security and statistics concerning specific types of crimes. This information is disclosed in the annual security report published by October 1 each year. For more information regarding safety and security or in order to obtain a copy of the annual security report, contact Risk Management or visit https://web.roguecc.edu/risk-management/campus-security.

Closures

If inclement weather conditions or other hazardous or emergency conditions require closure of one or more campuses, announcements will be made over local radio and television stations starting at 6 a.m. for day classes and 4 p.m. for evening classes. Information is also sent out to students using the emergency notification system, and to students and the public through postings on www.roguecc.edu and RCC social media accounts.

To learn more about RCC alerts, visit https://www.roguecc.edu/alerts.

Consumer Information

All consumer information is available online at web.roguecc.edu/about-rcc/consumer-information.

Electronic Communication

RCC primarily communicates with students via email. When applying for admission, provide a valid email address, and check regularly for messages from the college.

Foundation

foundation.roguecc.edu | 541-956-7327
H Building, Redwood Campus

The RCC Foundation is a private, non-profit organization that accepts tax-deductible gifts and bequests, sponsors fund-raising events, and makes funds available in support of students and the college.

Today, the RCC Foundation has more than $11 million in assets and supports the college through scholarships and direct funding to programs.

Faculty and Staff

www.roguecc.edu/directory

RCC employs approximately 310 regular employees: 49 exempt staff, 83 full-time faculty, 162 full-time classified, and 16 part-time classified staff. In addition, the college employs more than 450 adjunct faculty. 

Right to Learn

Rogue Community College (RCC) Administration recognizes all people's Right to Learn. Our mission is to provide quality education for all segments of society through open access admission offering equal and fair treatment to all students who desire to learn.

To achieve these ends, promote the physical safety and emotional well-being of RCC students, and keep our campuses secure and inviting to them and their families, Rogue Community College will do the following:

Pursuant to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (known as FERPA) and relevant law, RCC staff shall not disclose personal information including but not limited to any RCC student's immigration status. In addition, no RCC staff member shall ask about any student’s immigration status or that of a student’s family members.
In support of this, Rogue Community College will provide safe zones for students to communicate their concerns and access resources such as:

  • Bilingual counselors/advising case managers with whom students share a common identity.
  • A means to report hate incidences.
  • Advocates for sexual harassment complaints.

RCC, under FERPA, approves what Directory Information is published and shall not release “non-directory” student record information unless legally compelled to do so.

RCC security personnel do not have the authority to, and therefore will not enforce federal immigration laws.

RCC Administration has the authority and responsibility to control access to college property owned, leased, rented or occupied for the purpose of RCC-related education, service or operations, and restricts the facilitation or consent to immigration code enforcement unless under court order or in the event of an imminent health or safety risk.

Students

In the 2019-20 school year, approximately 11,438 students enrolled at RCC. That number represents a full-time equivalent (FTE) of 3,908 students.
