1. How long will it take me to complete this degree?

If the student can attend day classes and follow the curriculum outlined in the program, the student should be able to finish the degree in two years. If the student can only attend classes at night, or if the student needs to take several developmental classes, then it will realistically take 3-4 years to complete the degree.

2. Will I be able to find a job locally with this major?

More than 95% of the graduates from our program are able to find satisfactory employment. Our graduates are now working in business-centered jobs with employers such as the local banks, public schools, the hospital, the university, local government, as well as here at RCC.

3. I don′t know anything about computers. Will I be able to keep up in these classes?

YES! Instructors work with students with little or no experience in computers at whatever level you bring to the classroom. We are fortunate that we have a good instructor to student ratio and you will get a lot of individual attention.

4. Will the courses in this program transfer to a four-year institution?

Yes and no, the general education courses such as English, Math, Psychology, Sociology, Introduction to Computers, and Introduction to Business should transfer. The other classes in the curriculum may or may not transfer to a 4-year institution. You would need to check with that institution.
