Colleges / Universities
Securing a high SAT or ACT test score is great, but if it’s not supplemented by students’ extracurricular involvement, then it may not carry as much weight as you would think. Colleges and universities are especially attracted to students who can successfully balance academic excellence with personal and professional growth activities, including sports, professional organizations, cultural enrichment, and volunteerism. Check out some of the schools that our well-rounded, former RCC students represent, and read more about how students can become attractive candidates for their dream university.
*Statistics shown are based on 2017 – 2018 RCC students who have reported their final test scores and who have scored a 1400 or higher. Former students who would like to be featured should email a screenshot of their final test scores, along with any accolades you wish to share, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
