YELLOWJACKET PLEDGE REMINDER
As the heart of our college community, you are being asked to participate in the Yellowjacket Pledge. The Yellowjacket Pledge provides an opportunity for all community members to be a leader by carrying out the expectations of the pledge and assuming a responsibility to make our campus a more caring, collaborative, and positive environment. Participation in the Yellowjacket Pledge is voluntary, allows you to show your support for the mission, vision, and values of Rochester Community and Technical College by committing to being a positive and engaged member of our College community. The pledge is not enforceable as a policy but provides a shared understanding of what it means to be a Yellowjacket.
If you are ready to be a leader and role model respect, integrity, civility, and responsibility to others and are ready to help make our campus a more caring, collaborative, and positive environment to support your success and the success of others then sign the pledge here.
Be on the lookout for more opportunities to demonstrate your commitment to our campus community with Yellowjacket Pledge events throughout this academic year
CAMPUS SAFETY NEWS
RCTC’s emergency notification system makes it possible for students, employees, and community members to receive quick notifications by text, phone and email for campus emergencies that threaten life or safety and/or severely impact standard campus operations. The RCTC Emergency Alert system will only be used in emergency situations.
RCTC Students and Employees:
All current RCTC students and employees automatically receive RCTC Emergency Alerts at their RCTC email accounts. If you wish to receive alerts as a text message, a phone message, or at another email address, you need to set up an account by using either your RCTC email address or a personal email address as a user ID. You will need to establish a password for this account.
Non-RCTC students and employees may sign up to receive RCTC Emergency Alerts. If you wish to receive alerts as a text message, a phone message, or at an email address, you need to set up an account by using an email address as a user ID. You will need to establish a password for this account.
All members of the college community are encouraged to contact the Campus Security Officer or Campus Security Coordinator personally with any concerns and questions regarding campus security and related issues at:
RCTC Director of Campus Safety and Security
851 30th Avenue Southeast
Rochester, MN 55904-4999

Schedule a meeting with an academic advisor or counselor for help with your educational and career planning. Appointments help you determine what classes to register for next semester and discuss your progress thus far. Counselors can also help with personal, career and transfer planning. To make an appointment with either service professional, schedule online at https://advisortrac.rctc.edu or call 507-285-7260.
Remember to use these very valuable tools to assist you and your advisor/counselor in schedule planning for accurate and timely degree completion at RCTC:
- To access your DARS, login to the campus eServices website
- For detailed information on what DARS is and how to understand what it all means, click here.
- Course Transfer System
As partners with you to accomplish your goals, we’re interested in conversations with you about our institution and services. If you have a compliment or concern, you can share your thoughts about RCTC here.
THE TSC IS HERE TO HELP
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 personal information, or for you to send them money). It is most likely a SCAM!
