Early College

RCC’s Early College program allows high school students at participating schools to take RCC campus or online courses.

RCC's Early College Courses Are:

  • Available to high school students at a discounted rate, with the approval of the high school (see participating high schools). It is highly recommended that students check with their high school to see about participation, student costs and if the school has any available funding for course costs and/or books.
  • Taught by RCC faculty online or at any RCC campus.
  • Offered through the standard RCC schedule of classes (http://www.roguecc.edu/Schedule/) and available to the general student population.
  • Recorded on a student’s RCC transcript. The high school determines if the course(s) will apply to students’ high school transcript/diploma.
     

The Student Handbook is your complete guide to Early College.

Steps to Becoming Early College Rogue Ready

1: Discuss your Interest with your High School’s RCC Liaison to determine if:

  • The RCC course of interest is appropriate?
  • If the course prerequisites can be met or have been met? 
  • The RCC course applies to the high school diploma?
  • The timing is right?
  • The high school has funding to pay for the course and required books.
  • The high school plans to tell RCC who will be picking up the books (student or high school staff member).

 2: Apply for Admission/Obtain your RCC ID#  Students may already have an RCC ID#; to avoid creating duplicate RCC accounts students should check with their high school liaison or contact Rogue Central at rcs@roguecc.edu (541-245-7858). 

Optional: Students complete the RCC interest form if they want help from an RCC Admission Coach. 

 3: Take the RCC Placement Test offered at your high school or at RCC's Redwood Campus (Grants Pass) or Riverside Campus (Medford).

 4: Register for classes by logging into your myROGUE account and select “Register for classes”. Check with your high school to ensure the 3rd party Voucher Form (for billing the high school) is submitted by the first day of each term you are participating in. Sample Voucher Form
