Our College Navigators are a team of professionally trained individuals here to support you holistically throughout your time at Rappahannock Community College. Our department is designed to help you find your pathway, navigate your collegiate experience, and set you up for your future. Some of the general ways we can support you include:
- developing your academic plan
- helping to enroll you in classes
- providing career coaching
- answering general financial aid questions
- making ADA accommodations referrals
- exploring your transfer options
- connecting you to resources at RCC
- helping you to address SAP appeals and 3rd enrollment requests
You will have other individuals support you during your time here at RCC, including faculty advisors and other departments on campus, but always feel like you can email or call your navigator if you have a question. It is important that you meet at least once each semester during your first 30 credits to discuss your goals and check in on your progress towards achieving them. College Navigators work on a caseload system where you are assigned specifically. You can make an appointment by emailing our general email firstname.lastname@example.org or scheduling an appointment through Navigate.

Students with Disabilities
Students with disabilities who need accommodations to fully participate in the programs and services offered by RCC are encouraged to meet with an advisor. To be eligible for accommodations, students must submit documentation from a doctor or other professional. Services are provided based on each student’s individual needs. For complete details on our accommodations for students with disabilities, please see our RCC Catalog and Student Handbook.
If you might be dealing with depression or another mental health issue, a screening will help you to better understand your state of mind and whether it might be in your interest to seek further help. We are currently offering screenings.
