Just submitted application for Riverside Community College Fall 2013

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I was wanting to start a cohort for RCC Fall 2013 applicants. I just submitted my application and am studying for the teas V. Anyone else apply or am I the only one crazy enough to be worrying about it already?

    Hi! I just submitted my application today as well. I took the Teas already and didn't do so good, hopefully I can retake it and get a higher score. Studying in advance is a good idea the science section was by the far the most difficult.

    Hi! I think you can retake the test for RCC only if you scored below 62, but the good news is a 62 is all it takes to be able to apply. How is your pre-req GPA?

    My GPA is a 3.77 for my pre-reqs. What is yours?

    RCC is on a point system....the higher your TEAS score, the more points you get. Same thing applies to GPA, the higher it is, the more points get.

    Mine is 3.6, I have 3.8 on my other classes. I have the foreign language, and special circumstances points. So, going into the teas I have 50 points. Hopefully the studying will pay off! )

    I've heard that 85/100 is what they have been accepting into the program. Good luck!!!

    FYI... I applied a year ago and didnt hear back from them until the beginning of May. TEAs were scheduled for mid-May. So you have plenty of time to study.

    Thanks! That is good to know I went to the information session a couple days ago. They said that 80 points usually get in, people with 75 points could possibly make the alternate list. So if I score well on the teas and get 85 points I should be OK! Are you in the RCC program now Mina?

    No...I decided on Chaffey ADN program (closer to home). I start 2nd semester tomorrow. Yikes!!!
