My Courses – My Way

My Courses – My Way

A full-time experience at a part-time pace.


RCC’s new initiative, “My Courses – My Way,” is specifically designed to meet the needs of busy students who may be balancing school with work, family obligations and the other demands of life. It is designed for students who want to take and focus on one course at a time, but still be enrolled full-time. Students can enroll at any point in the semester when a “My Way” course is beginning, providing them even more flexibility. It’s also for part-time or visiting students who prefer to take courses in an accelerated format.


The School of Business and Professional Studies is offering five online courses in a three-week format during the Fall 2021 semester.

  • The online courses are all “asynchronous” meaning that there are no standard, routine course meeting times.
  • The courses will run consecutively, allowing students to take a full-course load throughout the semester.
  • The program also allows students to enroll in any of the three-week courses and also enroll in full-semester and/or 7-week flex start courses simultaneously.

“My Courses – My Way” gives students another course-format option to best meet their needs and accommodate their busy schedules.
