Steps for Visiting Students

Students who are attending RCC for the first time during the summer or winter sessions and not seeking degrees or financial aid. If you are currently attending a SUNY college or university you must follow the SUNY Cross Registration policy. All other students please follow the directions below.

  1. Visit WebAdvisor to view course offerings. You don’t need a password or User ID to look for courses. Select "Guest and Prospective Students" followed by "Search for Sections."
  2. When you’re ready to register, complete the one-page student data sheet (PDF). If you are a returning visiting student (who has previously taken courses at RCC), you do not need to complete the student data sheet.
  3. Complete the registration form (PDF), be sure to fill out the department name, course number, section number and sign and date the bottom of the form to avoid delays processing your registration (fill out the fields to the best of your ability).
    • If you are registering for a course that has prerequisites, you will need to provide transcripts (can be unofficial) to show that prerequisites have been met.
    • If you plan to take English or mathematics course, you may need to take a placement test or provide transcripts to show your skill level in reading, writing and/or mathematics. You can view the Placement Testing Schedule and visit Placement & Assessment or call 845-574-4328 if you have questions about what’s required.
  4. All students in New York State who enroll in 6 or more credits must submit a completed immunization form (PDF). Failure to provide acceptable immunization documentation may result in removal from classes without refund of tuition and fees. If you are enrolling in 6 or more credits, complete the immunization form and submit it with your paperwork.
  5. Email your forms, along with a copy of a valid picture ID, to The picture ID is required for registration and a residency check.

Please contact the Admissions Office at or 845-574-4224 to discuss your options.
