National Distance Learning Week

In observance of National Distance Learning Week, RCBC has offered a distance education scholarship, to a new or current student, in order to increase the awareness of various courses and degrees that can be completed online.  Distance education provides a unique opportunity for students that normally would not be able to physically attend a class on campus and provides all students with an alternate pathway for receiving their education. Online courses provide flexibility and convenience to students and faculty, who work collaboratively in the college's course management system, Blackboard Learn. We are proud of our institution, instructors and the more than 100 courses that are available online here at RCBC.  The RCBC Office of Distance Education has been offering complete degrees at a distance since 1978 and we currently offer 14 associate degrees and 4 certificates fully online. Please join us in celebrating National Distance Learning Week and recognizing some of our most successful online students.
