In order to enroll, complete these eight steps:
1. Apply for admission
Complete the RRCC application online at www.rrcc.edu/admis or stop by the Admissions Office. Upon completion, you will receive a User ID. The user ID starts with a capital "S" followed by 8 numbers (example: S12345678) Save this number as you will need it for registration and all other correspondence with RRCC.
2. Apply for the College Opportunity Fund (COF).
All Colorado residents should complete the application. The State of Colorado provides funding for students to attend college through COF. This is the state paid portion of your tuition which is a benefit to all Colorado residents. If you do not apply for COF funding and authorize its use, you are responsible for both the student share and the state share of all tuition and fees.
To apply and authorize COF: When you fill out the college application you may select "yes" to have a COF account automatically created, or you may visit: www.rrcc.edu/cof and click on "Sign up for COF"
3. Provide official documentation of one of the following assessment requirements.
The Accuplacer is the state-required test that provides information in these areas to help you and your academic advisor make appropriate course choices.
Students who have graduated from a Colorado public or private high school (or its equivalent) during the previous academic year, or students who will be working toward a degree within the Colorado Community College System, must be assessed for reading, writing, and mathematics ability.
You will not have to test your skills if: you are not seeking a guarantee transfer course or degree; if you can show proof (ACT/SAT scores taken within the last five years for Reading and English, 2 years for Math) that the minimum requirements have already been met; or if you already have a previous college degree (A.A., A.S, B.A./B.S. or higher).
This is not an entrance exam. No appointment is required.

5. Meet with an academic advisor.
An advisor will help you select courses, identify course prerequisites, obtain program information, evaluate assessment results, assist with transfer planning to a four-year college or university, and prepare you for graduation. They can check your progress in AA, AS, and AGS degree plans and develop a course schedule that fits your needs and academic goals. A team of academic advisors is available year-round by appointment or on a walk-in basis. An important step toward succeeding at RRCC is meeting regularly with an academic advisor.
