First-Year Experience

Promoting Student Success from the First-Year and Beyond!

At RCC, we want students to make the most of their college experience. First-year students can face challenges in adapting to different surroundings, procedures and general learning environment. To ease that adjustment, the College offers a First-Year Seminar designed to maximize the success of first-time, full-time freshmen in their transition to college life.

The seminar is an interactive, introduction-to-college course that will help new students to:

  • Strengthen their academic skills
  • Engage in critical thinking
  • Learn about campus support resources
  • Develop a sense of community and belonging to RCC


For more information on the First-Year Experience and seminar, call the Academic Advisement Center at 845-574-4443 or visit the Academic Advisement Center, located in Room 8227 of the Technology Center. Current students may stop by the Academic Advisement Center, call the office or log into myRCC.
