The Admissions and Records team here at Rappahannock Community College is to help make your transition to college life an easy one. Just follow these steps:
All new students must complete and submit an application for admission. To apply do one of the following:
- Complete and submit the online application or
- complete the Application for Admission [PDF] and mail or fax to the Admissions and Records office on either campus or
- complete the application for admission in the Admissions and Records office on either campus
Students who have not taken a credit class during the last three years must reapply for admission to RCC. A person who applies for admission but does not enroll in classes within one year (three consecutive terms) is required to reapply.
Request Transcripts and Official Records
Request official transcripts from your high school and previous colleges you have attended. If you received a GED you may provide us with a copy of your GED scores. Transcripts are required for students entering the Associate Degree in Nursing program or the Practical Nursing program.
At RCC, opportunities for obtaining college credits are available through Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Educational Support (DANTES), military service, and the police academy. It is the student’s responsibility to have official records submitted to RCC for evaluation.
RCC offers the Virginia Placement Test (VPT), a VCCS approved placement test that provides consistent and reliable assessment results for students applying to enroll in associate degree, diploma, and certificate programs and in courses that require an English or math prerequisite. This test is designed to help place students into appropriate courses needed to ensure student success.
The test has two parts, English and math. The English part of the test consists of an essay and 30 multiple choice questions. The math part of the test consists of questions and multiple choice answers. An online calculator is provided. Students are encouraged to use the review materials and take the practice tests first to prepare and do as well as possible.
Allow approximately two to three hours for each part of the test. You are allowed and encouraged to take a break in-between tests to ensure that you do your best work. Students may contact Student Development (804-758-6730) or call 855-557-5308 to schedule an appointment for testing. There is a $5 fee to take the placement test.
For information on alternative placement test option please see the placement policy in the Catalog. All test scores are valid for 2 years.

Class times and locations for both campuses are listed in the class schedule, which is available approximately two months before the beginning of each semester.
