If you do not intend to seek a degree, diploma or certificate at RCTC, RCTC allows you to register as a visiting student. Visiting students are not eligible for financial aid unless they can demonstrate the coursework is needed for pre-requisite work at a different institution. Contact our financial office regarding eligibility.
Steps to become a Visiting Student

Contact the Admissions & Records Office for assistance with registration.
Prerequisites: Registration in many courses may require a Visiting Student to demonstrate they met the defined course prerequisites. This includes submission of unofficial copies of college transcripts, ACT Scores, and/or completing the RCTC New Student Assessment Test. Contact the RCTC Welcome Center at 507-285-7557 to make testing arrangements if needed.
If your courses require you to show that you have met a certain prerequisite please complete the Prerequisite Evaluation for Visiting Student form, and submit this to the Admissions and Records Office.
