Prior to registering for classes, you must take the Accuplacer basic-skills assessment and/or the Accuplacer English placement test and follow the placement requirements. The Accuplacer takes at least 90 minutes and is available on a walk-in basis. Test times are listed in the current schedule and on our Web site. Initial tests are free; retesting is available for a fee of $5.00 per test section. All non-native English speakers are tested for English ability in addition to taking the Accuplacer basic-skills test. Depending upon your test results, you will then be placed in English as a Second Language or college level classes as appropriate.
Guaranteed Transfer to Universities
Many RRCC courses will transfer. Please consult with an RRCC academic advisor as well as a transfer counselor at the institution you wish to attend.
Certain majors require essential lower-division courses. Please meet with an advisor for information about obtaining a transfer guide that will help you select lower-division credits to finish your degree.
Credit earned for prior learning, advanced placement, correspondence courses, CLEP, and other credit from "testing out" of a course may not apply. The institution to which you transfer will evaluate these credits according to its own policies.
