Admissions Policy

River Parishes Community College (RPCC) has an open admissions policy which is aligned with that of Louisiana Community and Technical College System. Any person above the age of 16,
regardless of prior academic preparation, may be fully admitted to RPCC as long as the following criteria are satisfied: (1) the person has completed and submitted an application for admission; (2) the person has provided proof of selective service registration as required by Louisiana R.S. 17:3151; and (3) the person has satisfied the requirements of Louisiana R.S. 17:170 related to the immunization of persons entering school. Persons 16 years of age or younger must, in addition to the requirements stated above, provide proof of graduation from a state-approved high school or high school equivalency to be fully admitted to RPCC. Some educational programs may require additional information or documentation for admission into the program in order to achieve program or industry accreditation standards; however, these requirements will not have an impact on full admission to the institution.

Applicants who have not submitted all required documents prior to admission may be admitted provisionally. Provisionally admitted students are given 30 days after the start of the semester to
submit all required admissions documents. If the student fails to provide requested documents, an admissions hold may be placed on his or her academic record to prohibit registration for
subsequent semesters.

Additional admissions requirements may apply to dual-enrollment and international students. All eligible persons are assured equal opportunity for admission without regard to ethnicity,  religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, marital status, or veteran’s status.
