Enrollment Matters - Special Credit (Visiting) Student Status

To give the definition and requirements of special student statuses

Students who have not applied for admission into a specific program are classified as Special Credit Students. Special Credit Students are required to follow the normal enrollment procedures.

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

Should a Special Credit Student desire to declare a major, he/she should

  1. Submit a change of major request to the Office of Admissions, Records and Registration
  2. Meet college and program requirements
The responsibility for initiating the change from Special Credit Student status to a major lies with the student.

It is the responsibility of the student to verify with their home institution that the RCC course(s) will be accepted as a transfer credit.
