President’s Welcome

Message from President Jeffery S. Boyd

Welcome to Rochester Community and Technical College, your college. Community colleges changed my life forever and I hope we can change yours too. RCTC is a place where you will form lasting relationships with a diverse group of individuals who share your interest in learning. Whether you are seeking an associates degree, taking classes with plans to transfer, or taking class to earn certificates or workforce skills, we are here for you. From here, you can truly go anywhere!

Our talented faculty and staff are committed to providing world-class learning opportunities in a supportive, student-centered environment. RCTC offers advising and counseling services to all students and additional advisors for veterans, persons with disabilities, international students, students of color and online learners.

Many of RCTC’s programs are nationally accredited, which assures employers and transfer institutions that these programs meet the high standard for quality set by accrediting bodies. In addition, the College actively collaborates with employers and university partners to ensure that students have excellent employment and transfer options once they’ve completed their studies at RCTC. More than 80 percent of RCTC graduates find employment related to their field within one year of graduating. The College’s 95 articulation agreements with two and four-year institutions ensure that credits earned at RCTC will be accepted at transfer institutions.

If you’ve been thinking about college, NOW is the time! For information about enrolling, go to http://www.rctc.edu/admissions/.    And check us out on Facebook or Twitter. Then let me know what you think by writing to me at PresidentsOffice@rctc.edu.
