Why RCC?

One of the most important questions prospective students or parents can ask is “Why should I consider your college or university in my or my child’s educational plans?” When you see all that Randolph Community College has to offer, you’ll see why so many parents and students have already chosen RCC as part of their plan.

From our friendly, helpful staff to our well-qualified professors and wide variety of programs, you’ll be amazed by what you find at RCC:

Life in the Classroom

At Randolph Community College, the small classes and personal attention give students a better chance to succeed. At four-year schools, it is not uncommon for freshmen to be in classes of 100 or more students. At RCC, professors know students' names and are involved in helping them excel.

Randolph Community College’s facilities are accessible and comfortable, and the College has striven to provide state-of-the-art equipment, computers and software in every department, from automotive technology to computer information systems to photography. And the biggest advantage? Hands-on experience in classrooms, labs and internships that students cannot easily obtain at a larger university.

Life outside the Classroom

One big advantage of attending a hometown college like Randolph Community College is that you can save two years of room and board costs. That can amount to thousands of dollars of savings – which might be used to purchase an automobile, as a down payment on a condo or house, or just avoiding the need to pay off a large school loan after graduation.

RCC’s Student Services Center provides a fun, collegiate atmosphere for student gatherings, and the Student Government Association and clubs like Phi Theta Kappa, Campus Crusaders for Christ, and Common Threads provide recreation, opportunities for community service, and friendship.

Life after RCC

At Randolph Community College, many students plan to complete a one-year certificate or a two-year degree and enter the workforce. Many technical and vocational programs provide graduates with the training to enter fields where highly-skilled workers are in demand and paid just a well as those with a four-year degree.

Other students who desire a bachelor’s degree or plan to go even further with a master’s degree or a doctorate, can begin their studies in RCC’s Associate in Arts (College Transfer) program and transfer to a wide choice of colleges and universities. RCC students have transferred to every school in the University of North Carolina system, and many area private universities such as High Point University, Guilford College, Greensboro College, Gardner-Webb University, Pfeiffer University, and more.
