HAMLET — New and returning students began classes Monday at Richmond Community College’s main campus in Hamlet and at the Honeycutt Center in Laurinburg.
According to Dr. Dale McInnis, RCC president, enrollment numbers should be on par with last year.
“We had a great first day,” said McInnis. “The RCC faculty and staff worked very hard over the summer to make sure our first day went as smoothly as it could for our students.
“Our enrollment is strong once again and we expect it to grow as we move into our 12-week classes.”
The college is offering a “late start” session for anyone who missed the first day of classes but would like to enroll this fall semester. A session of 12-week courses will begin Sept. 16. Registration for these classes will be held now through Sept. 15.
Along with its traditional classes, RCC is offering two new programs this fall, Dialysis Technology and Mechatronics Technology, and has expanded its transfer opportunities thanks to a strengthened agreement between the North Carolina University and N.C. Community College systems.
