New RCCC Web Page
Students at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College now have a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week information source to help them stay on track and complete their programs of study.
RCCC’s Academic Advising Center has launched the “EDGE,” a new Web page designed to give students easy and quick access to the information they need to make academic progress. The Web page also gives students tools to manage their class schedule and develop a plan for academic success.
“EDGE” is an acronym, which stands for Engage the student, Develop a plan, Goals and Educational success. Included on the Web page are links to information about academic advising, class registration, schedule of courses, student forms and test preparation services.
It also includes a section called “My Responsibility as a Student” containing tools to help students make and keep appointments with their academic advisers, checklists to complete before adviser meetings and information on how to apply for graduation. Students also can e-mail advisers directly via the EDGE.
Near the top of the Web page is a link to frequently asked questions (FAQs). Next to the FAQs are the “Top 10 Reasons to visit the EDGE.”
To access the page, go to www.rowancabarrus.edu/advising/ or click on the “Advising Information” link on the RCCC homepage at www.rowancabarrus.edu.
