RCC College-Level Courses at PRHS
The Rockland Community College High School Program (RCCHSP) is open to juniors and seniors, allowing them to take RCC courses at Pearl River High School. The RCC courses being offered, and their pre-requisites, are listed in the Pearl River High School Program of Studies.
Students enrolling in the RCCHSP must complete and submit the RCCHSP Certification and a Student Data Form to the Guidance Office by Thursday, March 26; parental/guidance signatures are required. You may also apply electronically. Students must sit for the Accuplacer Placement Test to ensure they are eligible to take the course(s).
The Accuplacer Placement Test will be offered at Rockland Community College. We will inform students of the exact date, time and location as soon as that information becomes available. Students who miss the exam must make arrangements directly with Rockland Community College to take the exam on another date. It is highly recommended that students take time to prepare for the Accuplacer test. A number of links to online resources can be found at RCC's Review, Practice, and Test-taking Tips page; or visit their website at www.sunyrockland.edu/go/assessment and click on the box for "Online Review and Practice." Students who receive testing accommodations should also complete the RCC Assessment Exam Accommodation Request Form.
Some students may be exempt from taking the Accuplacer test based on their SAT, ACT and/or NYS Regents scores. A Request for Waiver of the Placement Test must be completed with the required documentation above.
Rockland Community College will manage the collection of tuition and fees once the course begins.
