Course Scheduling – Advising
Orientation and Advising
Students who fall into one of the categories below may schedule classes only after being admitted to River Parishes Community College. If you haven’t yet applied to RPCC, you can apply online now. Once admitted, the Office of Student Services will notify students about the dates and process for scheduling classes.
Freshmen & First Time Transfer
The Office of Student Services notifies all first-time freshmen and first-time transfer students when they are eligible to begin the course registration process. All first-time students schedule classes when they participate in RPCC’s New Student Orientation (NSO) Program. Students are encouraged to attend the on-campus NSO program, during which they create course schedules and receive parking stickers and ID cards.
** Due to COVID-19 #Stayathome orders, we are working on creating an online orientation portal for your convenience.
If you are looking for resources prior to attending NSO, we have put together two PowerPoints for you.
