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.

Step 1. Discuss your Interest with your High School’s RCC Liaison
- Is my RCC course of interest appropriate? Do I meet the course prerequisites?
- Can the RCC course apply to a high school diploma?
- Is my timing right?
- Will my high school pay for the course? Books? Will my high school tell RCC I will be picking up the books or will a high school staff member do so?
Step 2. Apply for Admission/Obtain your RCC ID# Students may already have an RCC ID#; check with your liaison or contact Rogue Central at email@example.com (541-245-7501). Optional: Student completes RCC interest form if student wants help from an RCC Admission Coach.
Step 4. Register for classes. Log in to your myROGUE account and select “Register for classes”. Check with your high school to ensure 3rd party billing form voucher is submitted each term of participation by the first day of the term. Sample completed voucher

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.
