A Welcome Message from RCC President, Elizabeth Crowther

The college mission is to provide “access to high quality educational experiences for members of its community, preparing them for success as learners, employees, and citizens.” You will find that your success is our focus. RCC has the finest faculty members and most devoted staff members who are eager to support you.

We know you will find us welcoming, warm, and available to you. You can start your experience with dual enrollment while still in high school. The award-winning Chesapeake Bay Governor’s School is on both RCC campuses. Next, complete a certificate, degree, or credential in RCC’s celebrated high-tech classrooms. RCC is ranked third in the nation for its use of technology in higher education.

Our faculty members are highly-qualified and constantly renew their skills. As a result, our students are graduating with superb preparation. The RCC nursing program, for instance, has been named number one of all college and university programs in Virginia this year, based in large part on their board test scores.

You can transfer from RCC to nearly forty universities with our guaranteed admission agreements, saving loads of money and financial aid eligibility. Talk with one of our academic advisors soon. RCC provides many ways to access coursework that meet your schedule. Many choose from our online course schedule. RCC has a long history of delivering quality distance learning.

RCC is a strong leader for economic development in this region, as it serves to bring the community together for initiatives, partners with business and government, and delivers agile workforce preparation to community members. We invite you to visit either campus or our Kilmarnock Workforce location to see our stunning training equipment for credentials in machining, controls, and welding.

Come be a part of RCC’s positive impact in this community. We are your resource, here to enrich your life and that of your neighbors. We can’t wait to see you.

Best Wishes,
