Academic Calendar

Academic Calendars in the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system are subject to modifications or interruptions due to occurrences such as fire, natural disasters, labor disputes, interruption of utility services, acts of nature, civil disorder, and war. In the event of any such occurrences, the College will attempt to accommodate its students. It will not, however, guarantee that courses of instruction, extracurricular activities, or other RCTC programs or events will be completed or rescheduled.
