TRADITIONAL TRANSFER OPPORTUNITIES
RBC has Guaranteed Admission Agreements with four-year colleges and universities across the Commonwealth that will enhance you educational opportunities.
At RBC our transfer agreements narrow the range of course options for you by providing a checklist – or sequence of what courses should be taken to satisfy degree requirements while attending classes in person or online. We take pride in simplifying the complexity of determining what courses to take while making your stay at RBC a successful experience.
