Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
RCC is a very affordable option compared to a public or private university. Our tuition is only $46 per credit hour. We encourage all students to apply for financial aid, even if you don’t think you will be eligible. We have fee waiver programs, scholarships, and The Promise program which covers tuition, fees, and a book voucher for two years for eligible students.
Registration is done online through MyPortal, EduNav or WebAdvisor. Watch the registration tutorial for step-by-step instructions. If you need hands-on support with registration, please visit the RCC Welcome Center. If you aren’t sure what classes to register for, please make an appointment to see a counselor.
If you are a California College and Career Access Pathways (CCAP) student, please follow step by step instructions for registration.
Submit an official transcript (sealed, unopened transcripts printed within 90 days to the counseling office or request your transcript to be sent to RCC directly from your institution). To follow up call the counseling office at (951) 222-8440.
If you plan to park on campus, you will need a parking permit. Daily passes are available across campus at marked parking kiosks, or you can order a semester permit online via WebAdvisor or MyPortal. You can view a quick tutorial video on purchasing your parking pass online here: https://youtu.be/P7JcGSfKTcU
Students can park in white-lined spaces while displaying their parking pass. Parking tickets will be issued if you do not display your permit. Familiarize yourself with the different lots, and allow yourself time to find an open stall. Yellow-striped spaces are for staff only. Please be aware of the rules and follow them to avoid a citation. Parking is limited. To save money and avoid traffic congestion you may want to use your FREE RTA bus pass, carpool or plan your trips to campus.
Please make sure your financial aid application is complete, and you have turned in any requested documents. Get your RCC ID card, parking permit (if needed), visit your engagement center, obtain your text books, and familiarize yourself with learning where your classes are by taking a campus tour (we have virtual options too!). You can view and print your schedule on MyPortal. It is a great idea to screen shot and/or print your schedule. For assistance in viewing your class schedule online, view this tutorial video: https://youtu.be/tKO4mdA_-Dg
