Located about a mile off of Highway 11, just outside of the Town of Ahoskie, NC “The Only One”. A town that seeks to promote, encourage, and support a high quality of life for all its citizens. As a rural community that relies heavily upon its faith based and family oriented communities, as well as its heritage, Ahoskie embraces the diversity of all its citizens.
The College currently has about 20 curricular programs in which students may seek degrees, diplomas and short term skills based certificates. Most recently the College has added an Associate of Fine Arts Degree in Visual Arts, in addition to diplomas in high demand occupational training in Building Construction, Plumbing and other construction related technologies. The College offers a Lateral Entry Teacher Certificate tailored to meet the need of public schools within the region desiring to fully credential educators who have entered the classroom without the advantage of full unrestricted licensure.
The College also has taken greater strides to provide transfer opportunities for students to pursue higher-level degrees. Through the North Carolina Community College System, a formal transfer agreement has been established with the 16-member University of North Carolina System, as well as with a variety of private colleges.
In addition to conventional classroom instruction, the College has expanded its distance learning studies to include Internet-based courses. It has increased efforts with area school systems to provide more opportunities for high school students to take college courses, either on the R-CCC campus or at their respective high schools.
Greater focus also has been placed on meeting the existing and future workforce needs of area business and industry through the Division of Continuing Education and Workforce Development.
The Continuing Education & Workforce Development Division also has continued to meet business needs by setting up basic or occupational related classes within local industries as well as developing Focused Industrial Training (FIT) opportunities. Its Small Business component works on a one to one basis with individuals and small companies wanting to start and or enhance a small business enterprise. The Hertford County JobLink Career Center is also located on the R-CCC Campus.
Roanoke-Chowan Community College has a strong tradition of building from the past and improving the present as it moves toward meeting the needs of tomorrow. And while the College is proud of its past, it realizes that its longevity is merely a stepping stone to the future.
