Take college-level courses or earn college credit while still in high school
At RCC we offer an Early Admit Program (EAP) to high school seniors who wish to complete their senior year of high school by registering as full-time students at RCC and taking credit courses on campus. For those students who prefer to study part time, we offer a High School Program course with classes available at your high school.
So why not earn college credit and get a head start on your college career?
You will be required to fill out the 2016-17 FAFSA to determine if you qualify for the Pell Grant Dual Enrollment Experiment. The Pell Grant Dual Enrollment Experiment, enables eligible low-income high school students the opportunity to earn tuition-free college credit.
