Semester Information

Notice

RRCC is responding to the recommendation to be as remote as possible. Beginning Monday, November 16th, we are asking all offices to work remotely for the remainder of the semester. The campus buildings will be open; however, services will be delivered remotely. If you do need to come to the campuses, access will be the same as is currently in place (check-in through designated entrances during building open hours, wear a face covering, take your temperature, agree to screening questions, and sign-in with your official ID).

Your Life Has Changed, But Your Goals Don’t Have To

Registration for Spring 2021 semester is open.  We continue to monitor the local, state and national guidance on COVID-19 and as you know, we are not out of the woods yet. As much as we would all love to be back on campus, we are keeping the safety of our students, faculty and staff as our top priority. 

Therefore, the spring semester will look very much the same as the fall semester looks now in terms of instructional course delivery and remote student success services.

During the 2020-21 academic year, some or all of the instructional formats may change due to an emergency situation affecting college operations, public safety, or public health, including the COVID-19 pandemic. Tuition and fees are charged at the beginning of the semester and will remain in place regardless of any changes in instructional format. Tuition and fees will not be refunded in the event the curriculum delivery format changes for any part of the 2020-21 academic year.

Nervous about online and virtual instruction? The following websites have great information for online instruction.


Will classes be more expensive since they are mainly online?

Students taking the remote and hybrid courses will pay the on-campus rate for tuition. The online courses labeled RRCCOnline or CCCOnline will be the only courses that pay the online tuition rate. Click here for full details on tuition and fees. Payment Plans are available, and you may qualify for Financial Aid.

 The Recreation Center Bond/Operating Fees along with the parking fee will not be charged for remote and hybrid classes in the Fall 2020 semester.  This is a savings of up to $135.86 for the term.
