Applicants for admission to Randolph Community College must be 18 years of age or high school graduates. The College will accept students with a high school equivalency diploma. A high school diploma or the equivalent is required for some curriculum programs (see Additional Admissions Policies & Procedures below).

Persons intending to enroll in a specific curriculum are encouraged to submit their applications at least two months prior to the term in which they wish to enroll. Applicants are not admitted into specific curriculum programs, and thus, not eligible for financial aid until admission requirements are met (i.e. transcripts, assessment, etc.). Applications are available online. The Welcome Center is open from 8 a.m. – 10 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m., on Friday.

International students and students seeking accommodations should submit applications two months prior to the term in which they intend to enroll. Please Note: Application, high school and college transcripts, financial statement and TOEFL score of 550 or above are required before an international student will be considered for admission.

Students who have not applied for admission into a specific program are classified as Special Students. Special Students are required to submit an application for admission and are eligible to take an unlimited number of courses. Special Students must meet the prerequisites/corequisites for courses they plan on taking. Special Students are not eligible for financial aid.

Proficiency examinations may be used to earn credit for additional courses taken as a Special Student.

Should a Special Student desire to declare a major, he/she should complete/submit a Change of Major form online, provide the appropriate transcripts, and participate in placement assessment to meet prerequisites/corequisites. For assistance in choosing a major, counselors are available through the Welcome Center.

The responsibility for initiating the change from Special Student status to a major lies with the student. Any questions should be directed to the Admissions Office. It is the responsibility of the student to verify with their home institution that the RCC course(s) will be accepted as transfer credit.

Students who have attended other colleges/universities are considered transfer students.

Transfer students seeking admission into a specific program must

  1. meet the same admission requirements as new students; and
  2. submit official transcripts from all colleges attended. (Official transcripts are received in a sealed envelope from the institution(s) attended.)

Applicants who have attended other institutions of higher learning may transfer credit earned in comparable courses or programs of study. (See Awarding Credit in the Academic Policies section.)
