Why does it take these people forever to reply? What are they doing? You can't tell me that they're busy. It's a fact that no one wants to go to this school.

The advisors aren't very good, the navigation station people are pretty rude for the most part, the book store staff is rude. It seems they are trying to get every class to be hybrid which is far from what I prefer. I want 100% class room with paper none of this submitting stuff online, I guess I'm old school when It come to this topic. But it is nice to have a community college so close to home.

I was a student at RCCC for 11 years. I had some great times. I enjoyed the different clubs and organizations on campus. I'm a student who needed accommodation due to a brain injury. During my time at RCCC I went through eight brain surgeries for a total of sixteen surgeries. My medical records were sent to RCCC as well as my high school transcripts. When I needed to go in for my life saving surgeries and had to miss class, the level of accommodation varied wildly among my instructors. One instructor simply said you'll just have to take my class next year. One instructor said, I'm teaching the same class next semester in the same room at the same time. All you need to do is come in on the date that I'll give you and you and the class can continue on together. Another instructor said, I want you to read the textbook cover to cover on your own. You'll need to do this in the learning resource center. The librarian will have a time sheet for you to fill out. When you have accumulated twenty four hours of reading time and you have a read the book cover to cover come see me. When you have done all your reading and made up your 24 hours of class time I will give you a ten question test that will cover the entire book. This ten question test will take the place of all the tests you took before you were hospitalized as well as any tests you've missed.I went back on campus a while back and was disappointed. I went to student services and I noticed a kiosk but it wasn't labeled so I just walked passed. I walked up to the desk to ask for a catalog. I was told to take a number. I was the only person there and I had to wait after taking a number. Finally, I was allowed to approach the desk. I ask if I could have a catalog. The lady behind the desk said "It's online" and walked away. I tried looking up the CNA program online. I couldn't find it. I tried to ask the lady behind the desk about how to find the CNA program but, before asking my second question I had to take a number. I got my second number and waited by myself by the kiosk. Finally I was called to the desk and I asked how do I would find the CNA program in the catalog. Her response "it's online" and walks away again.I have been in the home health field for nineteen years and I've been told by the RN's, DR's and FNP's that I could just take the CNA exam. they believed I had already gained the necessary knowledge and experience to take the CNA test. I took another number and waited by myself again until I was called to the desk again. I asked "how would I go about taking the CNA exam." Her response was "you would take the exam after completing all your classwork." She walked away again. I just gave up on RCCC after this experience.

This school is a trash hole....The advisors don't know a single thing they're doing and most, not all, instructors do not care to see you pass nor will they help you with anything. This is a poor community college, their website/quicklinks sites will lock you out of your account so fast from any invalid attempts and then will ask you to call the school and the school is never open or someone will not answer the phone. Please do not waste your time with this school, pick DCCC or something, just not here.....its horrible.
