All RCC classes and services move online

March 19, 2020

After meeting with state officials and college leadership, Rogue Community College President Cathy Kemper-Pelle announced the college will provide instruction and student services through online and virtual means only starting end of day Friday, March 20 through June 26, 2020. This decision allows RCC to deliver quality education to students throughout the entire spring term. 

"RCC is not closing," Kemper-Pelle said. "We are moving online for the well-being of our students and staff. Rogue Community College will continue to fulfill its mission to help students achieve their goals and meet the needs of our community during this national crisis."

Students are encouraged to register for spring term. Although some courses will be impacted, RCC is doing all it can to keep students on track for completion. If a course is removed from the schedule, additional online classes will be made available. These changes will begin this week and will continue through the two-week spring break, March 23-April 3, so students can get in the courses they need.
Training and support will be provided for students who are not familiar with online learning. Financial aid will be available, and all advising and counseling services will continue by virtual means.

Access to campuses will be restricted to identified personnel, enabling facilities cleaning and maintenance.

"I appreciate your patience and commitment," Kemper-Pelle wrote to staff and faculty in an email. She included a quote from Fred Rogers: "When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.' Thanks for being helpers."
