SALISBURY, N.C. – Registration is going on now for fall 2019 classes at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, with more students than ever taking advantage of affordable tuition, small classes with personal attention from instructors, transferable credits and pathways to lucrative careers.
“We are preparing to welcome students this fall and hope to continue our upward trajectory as a top educational choice,” said Dr. Michael Quillen, vice president of academic programs at Rowan-Cabarrus. “We experienced an eight percent growth from fall 2017 to fall 2018, and we are seeing increased interest for the upcoming fall semester as well.”
Rowan-Cabarrus offers traditional classes, internships, a variety of online classes, and credits that easily transfer to four-year institutions.
“We have many students who come to the College for our high-quality courses and then transfer to a state university in North Carolina as a junior,” said Dr. Carol S. Spalding, president of Rowan-Cabarrus. “The cost savings in tuition, fees, books, and room and board is significant, so they can end up with far less debt when they finish their education.”
In fact, approximately half of all Rowan-Cabarrus students intend to transfer to a four-year college or university. Top state institutions, including the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Appalachian State University and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, accept hundreds of Rowan-Cabarrus transfer students each year.
“I would advise anyone who is looking at college to take advantage of the affordability, quality of education and personal attention that Rowan-Cabarrus offers,” said Eva Nicholson, 2018-2019 Rowan-Cabarrus Student Government Association president. Nicholson graduated in May with an Associate in Arts degree and plans to continue her education at a four-year university. “I have grown as a student and as a person during my time here, and I feel it has positioned me for success as I continue my educational journey.”
Anyone interested in taking classes should begin the application and registration process as soon as possible. Enrolling at Rowan-Cabarrus has never been easier: Students may apply online at staging.rccc.edu/apply or stop by the Navigation Station at North or South Campus for personal assistance.
