Semester Information

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

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. Even though the Spring 2021 semester has started, we still have courses available!  Check out the list of courses that have not started yet.

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 Spring 2021 semester.  This is a savings of up to $135.86 for the term.
