President’s Welcome

Welcome to Robeson Community College. RCC is a special place where our faculty, staff, administration, and trustees are fully committed to supporting   the success of our students and the  community. We are committed to providing affordable, accessible opportunities for higher education that enable you   to achieve your personal and career goals. Whatever goal led you to join  the RCC family, we have the programs and support services to help bring your   goals for success into reality.

Our mission is to provide opportunities for academic, technical, and lifelong learning. Regardless of whether you are here to gain skills for employment,  earn credit to transfer to a four-year  university, earn your adult high school diploma, or update your job skills, we have a place for you.

Our open door philosophy ensures that regardless of whether you are currently in high school, newly graduated from high school, or have been in the workplace for many years, we can enable  you to find an academic pathway that puts you on your way to accomplishing your goals.

Our faculty are highly qualified and dedicated to teaching. They hold advanced degrees as well as certifications in their discipline. Academic preparation, as well as practical experiences, add  to the positive academic experience you will have at RCC. We are committed to maintaining small class sizes so that our faculty know their students by name and can focus on the needs of  each student. We offer support services such as tutoring, counseling, financial aid, and student activities to help our students juggle life responsibilities and enjoy their academic journey.

Our catalog outlines program offerings, policies, and procedures. I hope that this document will serve as a resource in answering any questions you may have about RCC. Other resources you  may choose to explore include our website, social media, and personal contacts with college employees.

We are glad you have made the decision to join RCC and look forward to helping you accomplish your goals.
