Advising

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 advisor@rappahannock.edu or scheduling an appointment through Navigate.
