Enrollment holds steady, workforce numbers increase at RCC

Spring 2022 enrollment at Rappahannock Community College is up overall by 2 percent, compared to 2021. Summer enrollment is also trending upward.

“Although credit enrollment remains lower than in 2019, the year prior to the pandemic, the data for spring 2022 looks positive,” said RCC president Dr. Shannon Kennedy.

RCC is also focused on shortages in the workforce, especially the lack of skilled workers. Enrollment in RCC’s FastForward credentialing classes has risen dramatically with a 76 percent increase over this time last year.

FastForward, a state-funded initiative, helps students gain the skills needed to quickly and affordably enter the workforce. Training programs are focused on industry-recognized certifications and licenses for a wide variety of in-demand careers.
