Admission of High School and Home School Students

Based on the guidelines developed and approved by the State Department of Education and the Virginia Community College System, RCC provides opportunities for qualified high school junior and senior level students to enroll in credit courses. Although the enrollment of high school students has the potential to enrich their academic program, it is not meant to substitute for their traditional high school or home school experience. Therefore, RCC has developed the following admission and registration procedures to assist these students in meeting their educational goals.

High School Students must:

  • Submit an online RCC application for admission.
  • Submit the signed parent permission form from the online application to the admissions and records office.
  • Take the VPT- English and math and earn qualifying scores.
  • Submit a completed High School Permission form each semester signed by the appropriate high school administrator(s) to the admissions and records office prior to registering for classes. Permission forms are available from the admissions and records office or from the high school guidance office.
  • Meet with a college counselor to review test scores and for course approval.
  • Reg­ister for classes.
  • See a college counselor prior to each subsequent semester for course approval.

A completed and signed High School Permission form is required each semester when registering for classes.

High school students cannot be program placed.

Home School Students must:

  • Meet with a college counselor to discuss tentative plans concerning enroll­ment in college courses.
  • Provide a current copy of a signed home school agreement be­tween the appropriate school system and the authorizing parent or guardian to the admissions and records office prior to registering for classes.
  • Submit an online RCC applica­tion for admission.
  • Submit the signed parent permission form from the online application to the admissions and records office.
  • Take the VPT- English and math and earn qualifying scores.
