Rainy River Community College has an open admissions policy. You will not be refused admission based on race, sex, color, creed, religion, age, national origin, disability, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, sexual orientation, or membership or activity in a local commission. A lack of English skills will not be a barrier to admission and participation.
You can enroll if you have a high school diploma or a GED. Even without those, you may be admitted if you demonstrate potential for success in college.
You do not have to take a standardized test to be admitted, and your high school grades and class rank are not considered.
After you are admitted, you will take a placement test. This will indicate whether you need to take remedial or developmental courses, which will not count toward a degree, before you can take college-level courses. Many students need just one developmental course, often in math or English. If you have taken a “college prep” curriculum in high school, you are more likely to do well on the test.
