RCC preps for summer, fall semesters

Summer classes begin May 26

HAMLET — With the spring semester wrapping up this week and graduation ceremonies planned for Saturday, Richmond Community College faculty and staff are turning their attention toward summer and fall classes.

Summer classes

Summer classes will begin May 26 at the college, with four-, five- and eight-week sessions available. All summer sessions will conclude by July 20. Late registration for summer courses will be held Wednesday, May 20, from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on RCC’s main campus in Hamlet.

A variety of courses are being offered, both online, with traditional classroom settings and with a mixture of classroom and online involvement. A full list of courses may be found online at www.richmondcc.edu by clicking on Academics and Class Schedules.

Students returning home for a break from four-year colleges and universities are encouraged to take advantage of the cost efficient classes at RCC by registering for general requirement courses and earning credits that will transfer to any school in the North Carolina university system.

“Many students choose to benefit from taking summer courses at Richmond Community College because it allows them to save significantly on tuition costs as compared to what they’re paying at universities across the state, as well as allowing them the opportunity of learning the material in a smaller class with more personalized attention than they would receive from instructors at a larger school,” said RCC Vice President of Instruction Kevin Parsons.

High school juniors and seniors are also provided an exceptional opportunity to get a jumpstart on their college education, as tuition costs are waived for these students taking summer classes at RCC.

Fall courses

Registration is already underway for current RCC students to select their classes for the fall, with scheduling for new students beginning in June. The first of two planned new student scheduling events will be held from 2:30 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. June 25, with a second event being held during the same hours on July 9.

Fall classes begin Aug. 17, with four-, eight-, 12-, 14- and 16-week sessions available. Late start dates include Sept. 15, Oct. 16 and Nov. 13.

New offerings at RCC

New programs being offered this fall semester include an Associate in Engineering Degree and online Project Management Certificate.

Students can take the Project Management Certificate completely online. The certificate is open to students of all majors. However, it is primarily targeted to working professionals who may have already earned a college degree (in any major) who find that they are working in an environment where they are working on projects and are seeking the skills and knowledge to successfully manage projects.

Also now offered completely online is the Associate in Arts degree, which is one of RCC’s college transfer programs. Students can take all the required courses online for this transfer degree program and essentially complete their first two years of college from home.
