Human Services Application Procedures and Info Sessions

RCC's programs provide the training and experience you need to enter this rewarding field and to fulfill the high demand for Human Service professionals. RCC Human Services advisors will assist you in deciding which pathway is right for you based on your interests, aptitudes, and career goals.

The application process will close August 29, 2024 at 5:00 p.m. for fall 2024-2025 entry.

The application process has several steps, which must be taken in order:

This is required, even if you have attended a session in a previous year. You will have an opportunity to learn about the field of human services, careers, and program pathways.

Step 2: Apply to Rogue Community College if you are not a current student.
Submit an online application to RCC and then complete the required Placement Process.

Step 3: Complete the Human Services Application form.

Please note: Many human services agencies and employers require you to complete a criminal background check upon application for practicum and/or employment. A conviction or an arrest does not automatically disqualify an applicant from a practicum experience or employment there is an appeal process which can be completed through the agency for which you are applying for your practicum. In addition, the Addiction Counselor Certification Board of Oregon requires verification of a minimum of two years sobriety time for those who are recovering from chemical dependence and who seek initial certification as addiction counselors.

The College is not responsible for assuring you meet certification/licensure eligibility requirements despite successful completion of Rogue Community College Human Services Program.

Questions on this can be addressed at an Information Session or by contacting the Human Services Coordinator, Manny Pacheco.

Step 4. For the AAS or AS transfer degrees: plan to complete the following courses as co-requisites (in addition to core HS classes) in the first three-four terms with a C grade or higher.

  • MTH63 Applied Algebra I OR MTH60 Fundamentals of Algebra I OR BT160 Business Math or higher-level math
  • WR121 English Composition I
  • CIS120/CS120 or above, or documented computer proficiency

For the Addiction Studies Certificate: plan to complete the following as co-requisites (in addition to core HS classes) in your first term with a C grade or higher.

  • CIS120/CS120 or above, or documented computer proficiency
  • WR115 Introduction to Expository Writing

Step 5. Applicants will be notified by mail of their application status.
Email Alice Jordan if your contact information changes or if you wish to withdraw or postpone your application.

Step 6: Orientation and advising.
Students pursuing the AAS or AS transfer degrees who are accepted into the program must attend a mandatory program orientation and advising session in September. Accepted students will be notified of the date, time, and location.
