Experience Red River College in the best way possible: take a guided tour! We offer prospective students free 60-minute tours of the Notre Dame Campus and Exchange District Campus (includes the Roblin Centre and Paterson GlobalFoods Institute) and our student residence.
On the tour, you’ll learn about the campus, our programs, student support services, the application process and you’ll get a great sense of what student life is like at RRC.
Thinking of coming to Red River College and wondering what an average day in a program might be like or if the program is the “right fit for you”? Why not sample the program for a day or part of a day. We will try to arrange a date where all your questions will be answered and you can experience “a day in the life of a student”
Contact us to help you with any questions you might have about programs, registration, the application process or interpretation of academic policies. Are you interested in taking a program but don’t know where to start? We would be happy to explain your options.
