Jump Start Program
What is Jump Start and how long is it ?

Jump Start helps you review basic skills and gives you the chance to place into higher-level classes, getting you more quickly on the road to academic success. This three-week program offers a fast-paced review of basic skills in writing, reading, and mathematics and gives you an exclusive chance to earn equivalency for up to two years of developmental level classes. Think of the time and money you could save! Many students arrive at RCC to discover they must take several semesters of developmental education courses prior to enrolling in college-level classes; often, this is due solely to poor performance on the placements exams.
