Fall 2023 Withdrawal
Register Now for Spring 2024
Comment Card
Technology Support Center


November 22 is the last day to withdraw from Fall semester 2023 full-term classes. Students unsure if they should withdraw from a course are encouraged to consult their academic advisor or counselor.

You can withdraw on eServices until 11pm or withdraw in person at the RCTC Admissions and Registration counter until 5pm. Students with “holds” on their record must withdraw in person.

The published withdrawal deadlines for short-term courses that start late or end early in the semester are available on the RCTC website.

PLEASE NOTE: Withdrawals do not impact GPA, but they do impact one’s completion rate and, as a result, may impact your ability to maintain satisfactory academic progress.

  • Get the schedule YOU want! Get the courses you NEED!
  • Don’t take the WRONG courses! Schedule an appointment with your academic advisor to review your degree plan.
  • You’ll have time to handle any ROADBLOCKS. Unexpected hold? Financial aid error? Starting early gives you time to figure out any barriers that might keep you from registering.

HOW DO I SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT WITH MY ADVISOR? Sign in to an online web-based tool that makes scheduling appointments easy! Just log in with your STAR ID and password to see your advisor’s appointment times. Trouble signing in? Considering a new degree? Need to meet with a different pathway advisor? Contact the Advising Center at 507-285-7260.

The Technology Support Center (TSC) is available for student’s technical issues here at RCTC, which includes login and printing issues, installing free software for home use, and guided assistance with laptops and mobile devices.

Additionally, the TSC has digital equipment checkout items and provides traditional media supplies. A complete listing of TSC checkout items, supplies and services can be found on the TSC website.

Educational discount tip: as a student, if you plan on purchasing any new technology devices or software, ask for an educational discount! Most retailers offer discounts for college students which can save you quite a bit of money.

Remember: always be very careful when someone contacts you that you were not expecting (with an offer of employment, a free prize, your password has expired, etc., and asks for your personnel information, or for you to send them money). It is most likely a SCAM!

Semester Hours:
7:30am to 8pm – Monday-Thursday
7:30am to 4:30pm – Friday
9am to 1pm – Saturday

Hours may vary

The TSC is located in our Welcome and One Stop Center, contact 507-536-5555 or for further information.
