RCCC urges: Apply and register now for fall classes

Rowan-Cabarrus Community College anticipates record-high enrollment this fall and urges anyone thinking about taking classes to apply and register now.
Fall classes start Aug. 17. Some class sections are already full.
RCCC’s early registration period runs through noon on July 31. After that, students will have to wait for late registration, offered Aug. 11 and 12.
Every prospective student must complete an application and return it to the RCCC admissions office, allowing two business days for processing. New students can apply online or in person at RCCC’s North and South campuses.
RCCC offers day, evening and online classes for adults and high school students. Persons wanting to pursue a four-year degree can take the first two years of college at RCCC, close to home and at an affordable price.
RCCC also offers GED and basic skills programs. Adults 65 and older can take classes tuition free.
See the RCCC website, www.rowancabarrus.edu/registration, for more details, or call the Student Service Department at 704-216-3593 or 704-216-3637.
In September and October, RCCC will begin offering “JobsNOW 12-in-6” programs. JobsNOW is a statewide community college initiative to provide condensed-time training programs to quickly train workers to re-enter the job market in fields that are in-demand locally and across the state.
RCCC has received $350,000 in federal stimulus money to develop 12-in-6 training programs and hire instructors.
RCCC will offer six 12-in-6 training programs, with the possibility of adding more. The planned programs are in Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration; Automotive Systems Technology; Electrical/Electronics Technology; Nurse Assistant; Office Systems Technology with a medical terminology focus; and Welding Technology.
For more details about the college’s 12-in-6 programs, contact RCCC’s R3 Center at 704-216-7201, and see the RCCC website at www.rowancabarrus.edu/jobsNOW.
RCCC provides more than 2,000 course offerings, serving a yearly overall enrollment of approximately 20,000 students.
