Application for admission to Red Rocks Community College and registration for courses can be accomplished over the INTERNET. To apply to Red Rocks, go to http://www.rrcc.edu/. Once in the Red Rocks page click on “Admissions”. Resident tuition is $232.15 - $62 = $170.15 per credit hour for all Colorado Opportunity Fund (COF) registered students. Our tuition for non-resident students is $259.30 per credit hour or $777.90 for one of our three credit courses.
Completed courses from other colleges or accredited institutions, which correspond to our EMP course requirements, can be transferred to Red Rocks, at no cost, after submitted transcripts are reviewed for applicability toward our EMP Program. Only a C grade or above will be accepted for transfer.
When requesting credit for courses for which you have certificates or are from non-accredited institutions such as FEMA you need to go through what we call our "Credit for Prior Learning Program." At least 15 hours (five EMP courses) must be taken through Red Rocks. Unfortunately, we just give one hour of credit toward FEMA IS courses so you would need to combine three IS courses, which generally correspond to one of our EMP courses. Each credit costs $15 or $45 for a three credit course. You can get more information about this process by calling Stan Eigsti at 303-914-6724. You can also download the "Credit for Prior Leaning Handbook" to get additional information about this process.
