To ensure you’re planning the right academic course, check your academic major shown on your degree audit report (DARS) in the eServices site. If you need to declare a major change, please meet with your academic advisor to review your record and academic plan.  Major change requests are received and processed by the Records and Registration Office.

Spring 2022 registration is OPEN for all degree-seeking students!

You can register by logging in to the eServices site, selecting the ‘Registration’ tab and the proper year/term, then clicking on the ‘Registration Window’ link. If you have any questions regarding registration, set up an appointment with your advisor or counselor via AdvisorVue.

Transfer students may register by participating in an orientation session or by completing the online orientation.

All students are strongly encouraged to meet with their academic advisor or counselor prior to registering for any term.

Students receiving Financial Aid at RCTC must be making academic progress toward their degree.  Following each term, students are evaluated to determine if they are maintaining a cumulative (overall) GPA of 2.0 and completing at least 67% of all attempted credits.  Students not meeting these standards are placed on Warning and may be allowed to continue receiving financial aid for one semester.  Students who fail to meet the standards for two consecutive semesters will be placed on Financial Aid Suspension and become ineligible for all types of financial aid.

Financial Aid students are also evaluated to ensure they have attempted no more than 150% of the credits required for their program (including transfer credits).  If the student fails to meet this criteria, also known as “Maximum Timeframe,” the student is immediately placed on Financial Aid Suspension, without warning.

For more details about these requirements and a description of how the policy is applied, please review the RCTC Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy.

Students who do not complete all registered courses in a semester may be required to repay a portion of the Financial Aid funding which was disbursed.  The amount of repayment is based on the number of days the student attended and/or participated in classes.  The RCTC Return to Title IV Refund policy describes the process used to calculate any amounts that must be returned.  Students who totally withdraw from courses, as well as those who simply stop attending, are affected by this policy.  Please contact the Financial Aid Office for more information if you are considering a total withdrawal or if you have stopped attending your courses.  We can help you understand your responsibilities.
