About Richmond Community College

"In April 1964, the North Carolina Department of Community Colleges, upon recommendation of the Commission of Public Education beyond the High School Level, established Richmond Technical Institute. Seven months later, the voters of Richmond County authorized a bond issue and a tax levy for construction and support of Richmond Technical Institute. In October 1980, the name was changed to Richmond Technical College. In July 1987, the name was again changed to Richmond Community College when the North Carolina General Assembly approved Richmond Community College's application for community college status.

In 2008, RCC served 2,284 students in curriculum programs and 5,598 students in continuing education programs. RCC offers 23 associate and associate in applied science degree programs, 9 diploma programs, and 16 certificate programs.
