Rappahannock Community College Enrolling for Spring 2023 Term

Rappahannock Community College is now enrolling for the spring 2023 semester. With campuses and sites in Glenns, Warsaw, King George, New Kent, and Montross offering in-person and online options.

RCC offers a rolling admissions process allowing students to begin and continue their educational journey when the timing is right for them. From workforce credentialing to college credits toward an associate degree or transfer degree; skills training to high school dual enrollment.

In addition to the traditional sources of financial aid and tuition assistance available, RCC students can apply for scholarships, and state sources like G3 and FastForward. Virginia’s G3—Get a Skill, Get a Job, Get Ahead—provides tuition help for those studying certain programs in IT, public safety, healthcare, skilled trades, and early childhood education. FastForward helps students pursuing short-term workforce training for the most in-demand jobs across the Commonwealth.

RCC Navigators and Financial Aid Specialists are ready to help anyone take the next step. Enrollment is on-going and classes begin January 17.

A Message from Gloucester Volunteer Fire and Rescue

“On Tuesday, Gloucester Volunteer Fire and Rescue Squad received at least 17 calls for service in an 8-hour period, about 4 times our normal call volume for that timeframe. Our staff was able to respond to 16 of the calls with Abingdon Fire and Rescue picking up the 17th. On another recent evening, we received 7 calls within an hour, transporting 8 patients. The handling of all these calls was a tremendous effort by our on-call staff as well as many others that stepped up to help. Our call volume is constantly increasing and we are in search of new volunteers to join our dedicated team of Firefighters and EMTs.

If you’re interested in serving our community, please visit http://www.gvfrs.org/join/ for more information and to download our application. Training is provided.”
