Why RCC is the Choice For You

RCC is a community college like no other. As a student here, you'll discover a culture of caring and hospitality that extends from our president to our faculty to every staff member. We do all that we can to make sure that nothing gets in the way of you achieving what you set out to achieve, including assisting with financial aid, tutoring services, transferring and offering a variety of tools and resources.

As part of our program offerings, we offer several unique learning opportunities you won't find at most other colleges. These include our Health Coaching program and our Agribusiness Technology program and its Zoological Horticulture certificate program, offered in conjunction with the nearby North Carolina Zoo.

Not too small and not too big, you'll also find that RCC offers a perfectly balanced experience, offering the top-notch facilities and technology of a big school with the personal care and high-quality instruction of a much smaller institution.

Despite being smaller than some other community colleges, RCC is home to facilities that rival and exceed many other, larger schools. These include our Allied Health Center, where nursing, radiography and EMT students can learn in 45,000 square foot simulated hospital setting; our recently-renovated 37,000 square foot photography facility that is home to studio space, darkrooms and computer labs; and our integrated machining facility, where students can learn and get real experience in welding, machining and other in-demand trades.

These facilities and others where you'll take classes are equipped with the latest technology so that when you step out of the classroom and into a job, you'll be familiar with the tools of your trade and ready to excel.

Learning is about more than just technology and tools, though, and at RCC, you'll get the personalized attention and professor-led instruction of a small school. As a student here, you won't just be a number stuck in a giant lecture hall with 200 other students taught by a grad student. Instead, many of our classes are just 10-25 students, guided by a highly credentialed or professionally experienced instructor.

Our faculty are dedicated to teaching you and preparing you to succeed, regularly going above and beyond to develop engaging course work and keep their classes up to date with the latest trends and information.
