Will my credits transfer?R-MC will review for transfer credit any course in which you have received a grade of C- or higher and for which there is a comparable course offered at R-MC.
When will I find out if my credits transfer?After you are admitted to R-MC, our Registrar's Office will provide you with an official review of your course work. The Registrar's credit evaluation will detail which of your courses will transfer and how those courses might be applied to our curriculum requirements.
I attended a Virginia Community College—which of my credits will transfer?While an official review of your course work will be completed after your acceptance at R-MC, we do offer an unofficial review of your VACCS courses prior to acceptance. Please contact Annie Keith more information.
How many credits may I transfer?R-MC will offer transfer credit for up to 75 semester-hours of coursework meeting R-MC's transfer credit criteria. Please note, however, that you must plan to complete at least half of the required courses in your major or minor at R-MC.
Will I be considered for financial aid or scholarships?Yes! During the admissions process review, you will automatically be considered for a merit-based award in the form of scholarships or achievement grant. You will be notified of any merit awards in your acceptance letter. In addition, you may apply for need-based financial aid. Questions? Find out more information about financial aid.
Will I have an academic advisor?Absolutely! When you enroll at R-MC, you will be paired with an academic advisor who specializes in working with our transfer students. As you become familiar with R-MC, you will have the opportunity to choose an advisor in your area of academic interest.
When will I select my courses?Once you have been accepted to R-MC and we have received your reservation deposit, you will be contacted by your advisor to begin the course selection process.
Will I have the option to live on campus?Yes. In fact, Randolph-Macon College requires that all students live in college-owned housing unless one of the following exceptions applies:
