Expect a successful return.
Welcome back to our learning community! We’re glad you’ve decided to continue your educational goals. A Rochester Community and Technical College education can change your life.
Here are some topics that returning students
frequently have questions about:
Start – If you have grades on your RCTC transcript
that are weighing down your GPA, you’ll want to learn about the
Fresh Start option. Please fill out the Fresh Start Application and return it to the Admissions Office.
- Prior Coursework – You’ll want
to know how the courses you took in the past count toward your degree
today! A visit with an RCTC
Advisor or Counselor is in order. Be prepared for your visit by
printing a DARS
report in advance.
- Transfer Credits – If you attended another
college since your last term at RCTC, you’ll need to have official
transcripts sent directly to the RCTC Admissions Office. Once received
we’ll perform an evaluation of those credits and send you an
email confirmation when the process is complete. The audit indicates
which courses transfer and how they apply to your specific degree
- Registration – Once your student record
is updated you’ll be able to utilize web-registration through
the eServices. Watch your mail for further instruction!
and Programs – It’s very likely that our program
offerings have changed, as have the requirements for certain degrees.
If you want help finding a major, you’ll want to speak with an
RCTC Counselor or Advisor. If you want to browse the catalog to see
what majors are offered and to read course descriptions, you’ll
find our online catalog most helpful.
