Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This index doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture.

RCC is a great college with great professors. My first semester I was so overwhelmed as a mother and student, but with the help of tutors and teachers I have been a very successful student. If I could change one thing about RCC it would be for the school to provide childcare services for their students. Unfortunately I had to take a few absences from class because some of the days my children were on break or had 1/2 ect, but overall I've had a great experience at RCC.

I have taught many classes here in Social Media marketing for small businesses for the Small Business Center and always enjoy the students as well as the physicality. It is very nice campus with easy access from the main roads and good parking. I highly recommend the Small Business Center for any local owned businesses to get free consultation and training. Of course the community college in general is very good and you should check out their website for list of all the classes.
