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 ( 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.

The Pathfinder Handbook for High School Students is your complete guide to Early College.
