Steps to Apply

It only takes a few simple steps to enter the “Gateway to the Dream”.

Step 1:  APPLY for Admission
Meet with an Enrollment Counselor and complete an application at one of our weekly information sessions which are held on Thursday evenings at the Enrollment Center on the first floor of the RCC Administration Building.  Campus tours are available to prospective students and their families. Contact Enrollment Services today to sign up for any of these events. 

Submit a copy of complete High School Self-Certification Form. Submit official college transcript(s) if you plan to transfer credit to RCC. Transcripts for schools outside of the United States must be evaluated by a recognized credential evaluation agency to determine US equivalency.

Step 2:  Apply for Financial Aid
Financial Assistance is available to help you finance your education. Complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) at www.fafsa.ed.gov. When completing the FAFSA online, be sure to list Roxbury Community College in the “schools information section.” Our code is 011930.  Once we have received your FAFSA, you will be notified of any additional requirements.

Step 3:  Take the Academic Skills Assessment
All students must take the Academic Skills Assessment which measures your Reading, Writing,Math, and Science skills. Students with prior college credits or SAT scores may be eligible for a partial or full waiver of the assessment. For more information regarding the Assessment, or time and dates it is given, visit the Assessment.

If you require testing accommodations or access services, students with documented disabilities are encouraged to contact Linda O’Connor, 617-541-5006 and loconn@rcc.mass.edu.

Step 4: Meet with an Advisor to Develop an Academic Plan and Register for Classes
No appointment is necessary to register for classes. Drop by the Advising Center in the Academic Building to meet with an academic advisor to develop an Academic Plan before registering for courses to ensure your experience at RCC is as successful as possible. An up-to-date list of available classes can be found on the Credit Course Schedule.

Step 5:  Show Proof of Immunization for all full-time students (12 or more credits)

Massachusetts General Law requires all full-time students (12 or more credits), and all Health Sciences and International Students to provide proof of immunization against specific diseases. The required immunizations are: Tdap (booster within the past ten years); two doses of MMR (measles, mumps, rubella); three doses of Hepatitis B and two doses of varicella (chickenpox). Tuberculosis requirements must be completed by all Health Sciences students and International Students. The Enrollment Office will provide students with the Immunization and Medical History Form for completion by the health care provider and the Medical History Record Form for completion by the student.
