National Distance Learning Week

National Distance Learning Week will be November 6 - November 10, 2017. In observance of National Distance Learning Week at RCBC, we are once again planning to offer a distance education scholarship, to a new or current student, in order to increase the awareness of various courses and degrees that can be completed online at RCBC.  Check back in the fall for more information.  Check out our 2016 winner!

About Distance Education

Distance Education at RCBC was started in 1978 to enable students to earn college credits without having to attend class on campus.  Today, 30-40% of all RCBC students are taking online classes during each semester.  Seventy-five percent of the 2014-2015 graduating class took at least one online class!  Students enjoy the flexibility and convenience these courses provide.  Distance education courses are fully accredited college courses.  Currently there are over 90 distance education courses offered online!  RCBC is committed to adding new courses and upgrading course technology at every opportunity.
