RCTC implemented student print accounting Spring Semester 2011 to promote Green conservation, help control rising printing costs, and aid in keeping student technology fees down. The following information represents RCTC’s student printing guidelines.

RCTC students will receive 500 sheets/credits of paper into their print accounts at the start of each semester which can be used for either single sided or double sided (duplex) black laser printing.

Currently the Library Technology Center (LTC), located on the third floor of the library, and the Comprehensive Learning Center (AT 306), support duplex printing. RCTC is continually expanding duplex printing services throughout campus and will keep updated changes on the RCTC Student Printing webpage.

Each student that logs on to a campus computer will be able to track and purchase additional sheets/credits of paper through the print management account icon on the computer desktop.

At RCTC Student Health Services, we are here to assist all current students with their health, illness, and injury concerns while on campus. A registered nurse is available daily and a nurse practitioner is available weekly. Services we offer on campus include assessment and treatment of acute illness (cold, sore throat, skin rash, etc.,) physical exams for academic and athletic programs, blood pressure screening, and TB (tuberculosis) tests. Lab tests for strep throat, urinary tract infection, pregnancy, blood sugar, cholesterol, and mononucleosis are also available. We have Bandaids, condoms, and a variety of over-the-counter medications for colds, pain, and stomach problems, too. If other services are needed, we can assist with referrals to community healthcare providers.

Student Health Services is funded by the Health Service fee included in the tuition statement, so most of the services we offer are free. Yes, FREE! (There is a small fee for a few services, but most really are free.)

But that’s not all! Since we understand that students learn better when they are feeling well, at Student Health Services we don’t just care about illness, we also want students to learn how they can stay well and improve their overall health and wellness. Nutrition and physical activity challenges, health screenings, flu shots, and health-related events are just some examples of these opportunities. Look for announcements and more information in your student e-mail or on RCTC’s Facebook page.

Student Health Services is located at HS 140 in the Health Sciences building. Walk-in appointments are available, but appointments are preferred. Stop by or call us at 285-7261. Visit the Student Health Services website at for hours, services available as well as links to valuable resources.

The RCTC Student Health Services does not give excuses or notes for missing class or practice. It is the student’s responsibility to notify his/her instructor or coach if class or practice must be missed.
