HAMLET – University students coming home for the summer can get ahead on their college credits by taking classes this summer at Richmond Community College.
RCC summer classes include many transferable general education courses, which means these students can take challenging science, math, literature, history and government classes in a smaller college setting with more individualized attention. General education credits earned at RCC will transfer to their home university and count toward their bachelor’s degree.

“Taking advantage of summer classes at Richmond Community College is a great way for students attending four-year colleges and universities to achieve their academic goals,” Vice President for Instruction Kevin Parsons said. “Our summer schedule is packed with general education courses that will transfer to North Carolina public universities. Also, university students who take summer classes at RCC, where tuition is more affordable, can save some money while getting ahead on their college education.”
A majority of RCC’s summer classes are offered online, so university students not coming home can still complete them and earn transferable credits.
Some of the online transferable general education courses that will be offered this summer at RCC:
General Biology I and II, Statistics, Art Appreciation, Micro & Macroeconomics, American Literature I , Precalculus Trigonometry, British Literature II, American History I and II, Introduction to Old Testament, Introduction to New Testament, Introduction to Ethics, General Psychology, Introduction to Sociology, Sociology of the Family, American Government, World Civilizations I and II, Public Speaking, and Spanish I and II.
Students looking to take Anatomy and Physiology I, and College Physics I will have to attend class on the RCC campus.
