As an RCC alumnus, you are a valuable member of a large Tiger community comprised of graduates whose educational journey and career path began at Riverside City College. You have first-hand knowledge about how vital community colleges are to the students who begin their educational transformation.

Thousands of students have walked the campus, enrolled in classes, and earned degrees or certificates from Riverside City College. For some, they were the first in their family to attend college. RCC may have been a stepping stone to an advanced degree or the start of their career. For all, an RCC education was a path to a more secure future.
