Are you already a student at RCCC and want to change your program of study?
Please do not attempt to change your program of study by submitting or resubmitting an online application. Current students should complete a "Program Change" form. You can access this form electronically by clicking here. You can submit this form to Student Services at any of our campuses.
Are you a current high school student (9th-11th grade)?
Please speak with your school counselor to obtain more information about the Career and College Promise program prior to applying.
We are glad that you are considering beginning or continuing your education with us. RCCC maintains an open-door admissions policy to all applicants who are high school graduates or who are at least eighteen years of age. Most of our degree, diploma, or certificate programs are taught at a level beyond high school. Therefore, a high school diploma or recognized equivalent is usually minimal preparation. If you have not completed high school, the college provides G.E.D. programs through the Pre-College Division.
Rowan-Cabarrus requires a social security number for the issuance of IRS Form 1098-T and for record-keeping purposes. "An eligible educational instituion, such as a college or university...must get your correct identifying number to file certain information returns with the IRS and to furnish a statement to you. For students, this will be your Social Security Number (SSN). Failure to furnish a SSN may subject you to a possible IRS fine of $50." IRS statement
Applications without a social security number require additional processing that will delay your application and course registration. You may stop by the Rowan-Cabarrus Admissions Office to provide information rather than submitting it via electronic media.
If you are a permanent resident or if you are in the United States with a particular visa, please bring your documentation to the Admissions Office for verification. A copy of your documentation is required prior to admission.
