Early College

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

RCC Early College courses are:

  • Taught by RCC faculty
  • Offered through the standard RCC schedule of classes (http://www.roguecc.edu/Schedule/) and available to the general student population.
  • Located at one of the three RCC campuses or taught online.
  • Available to high school students at a discounted rate, provided the courses are arranged through the high school’s liaison and billed directly to the high school. Students should check with the high school about student costs and if the school has any available funding for course costs and/or books.
  • Recorded on a student’s RCC transcript. The high school determines if the course(s) will apply to students’ high school record/diploma.

Student Responsibility:

It is the student's responsibility to  follow the Rogue Ready steps detailed above, apply to the college online, keep track of their RCC ID and password, make advising appointments, register themselves in courses, take the placement test prior to their first term, watch add/drop and other deadlines on the academic calendar, and work with their high school liaison to determine if the courses will apply to their high school diplomas. RCC is not responsible for monitoring students' enrollment.

 

Note for homeschooled high school students

Homeschooled students may take RCC classes just like any community member. Resulting courses and grades will become part of your RCC transcript and it is the responsibility of the student/parent to ensure such classes will meet and apply to homeschool/high school diploma requirements per state requirements. Homeschooled students are responsible for all course costs and there is currently not a discount. Homeschooled students seeking financial help are encouraged to contact the schools that are participating in our Early College program to see how they might assist you on a part-time or full-time basis in taking RCC classes.
