Textbook Fee

These fees are extra, unless otherwise stated. Students are expected to purchase their own books prior to the first day of class. Books can be ordered online or at 2055 Notre Dame Ave, Building DM-11, Red River College Campus Store.

The Audit Option

This is the “no-tests, no-assignments, no-stress” course. Take any credit course for pure pleasure and enjoyment — without the work! (Some prerequisites may apply.) At your first class, let the instructor know that you are auditing, then participate and experience the joy of learning.

Transfer of Credit

Many courses are transferable to a full-time program at Red River College or vice versa. Transfer credit will be given if program requirements are met, subject to approval. Credit for courses taken at other educational institutions may be granted towards Red River College courses and programs. A formal application with proper documentation is required to transfer credits.
