Getting Started As a Returning Student 

Become a Student

You are a returning student if you have previously attended Riverside City College, Moreno Valley College, or Norco College and you have missed one or more major terms (fall or spring). Welcome home to RCC! If you’re still undecided about your career path, take a moment and visit the Career Survey website or our Academic Pathways to learn more about the programs and courses we offer. 

Our Online Application process is quick. You can get help with your applications by visiting the Welcome Center or Admissions & Records, both located in the Dr. Charles A. Kane Student Services and Administration Building.

Prior to registering for classes, you may have to clear previous fees and holds (dismissal, library holds and/or prerequisites) — you can check or clear holds online via MyPortal.

You’re now ready to register, which can be done through MyPortal. When you log in you will be able to: 

  • See your Abbreviated Educational Plan/Trailhead and Placement Summary  
  • View your suggested first-term courses 
  • Find registration dates and deadlines (very important) 
  • Register for classes 

*Students are qualified to take transfer-level Math and English or academic ESL in the first year at RCC
