Freshman

 

Roanoke-Chowan Community College (R-CCC) seeks students with diverse backgrounds who thrive on active learning.  We believe that college should be both fun and life-changing.  This happens best on a campus where classes are small, faculty want the best from and for their students, and where there is opportunity for personal growth.

In order to be considered for admission, all incoming freshman students must complete the following steps.

1. Apply for Admissions

Complete an application for admission either in person at the Admissions Office or online.

2. Submit Transcripts

Once you apply, be sure to have an official copy of your high school transcript or GED test scores sent to:
R-CCC Admissions Office
109 Community College Rd
Ahoskie, NC 27910

3. Apply for Financial Aid (if needed)

Nearly 90% of all R-CCC students receive financial aid from federal, state, and private sources. One application—the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) – is used to determine the amount of aid you may receive. To meet deadlines and ensure fund availability, it is important to fill out your application as soon as possible. The R-CCC Financial Aid Office can assist you with questions regarding the completion and submission of your paperwork.

R-CCC School Code:  008613.

ALL newly enrolled degree-seeking students are required to complete a New Student Orientation Session as part of the pre-enrollment process. Orientation will cover  academic policies, getting connected to the college, and locating campus resources and services.  It is also a great opportunity to meet other students and become familiar with the campus.

5. Advising & Registration

Meet with an Academic Advisor to plan your academic path, select courses, and register for classes. Register early to ensure you enroll in your desired courses.  Students with the appropriate access may self-register through their WebAdvisor account.  High school and newly enrolled students may not self-register.

6. Book/Supplies/Student ID

Purchase books and supplies at the Neebo Bookstore (Jernigan Building, Room 111). Items needed at time of charge: a current student ID issued by Student Services, and a copy of your class schedule.  Financial Aid eligible students should view the Academic Calendar for dates in which to charge books.  Note:  There is a 5-day return policy on books.

Financial Aid eligible students should ensure all financial aid paperwork is completed and aid is awarded to cover the cost of tuition, fees, and/or books.  Cash paying students can pay tuition and fees by phone, by mail, or in person at the Cashier’s Office (Jernigan Building, Room 102) by posted the deadline.
