1. Apply to Rochester Community and Technical College (正规赌博十大网站)

We encourage you to apply for admission up to one full year before the semester you plan to enroll at 正规赌博十大网站. Early applicants get priority for testing and registration. There is NO application fee at 正规赌博十大网站!

NOTE: International Student Application deadlines are different than the deadlines stated above. Please refer to the International Student application page for more specific information.

2. Activate your Star ID

The StarID is a username with the goal of replacing your many login IDs with one ID, one password, everywhere. Once you activate it, you can use your StarID and password anywhere that accepts StarID. It is unique across the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, so you can use it at more than one school.

If you have problems activating or updating your StarID, please contact the Technology Support Help Desk at 507-536-5555 or stop by their office in the Welcome and One Stop Center.

3.Provide Course Placement and Eligibility Materials

All new students need to be placed in the proper English, Reading, or Math courses.

Students can have their test scores and high school GPA considered for college placement, what we call “Multiple Measures for Course Placement.” These items can be mailed OR emailed to onestop@lm-kzmn.com.

  1. Send test scores:
    • Students can verify test scores (ACT, SAT, MCA, or ALEKS) pulled out of their portal (unofficial test scores) with a College Transitions Advisor or high school Counselor and send to 正规赌博十大网站. Official ACT or SAT copies are also accepted when a student requests them from ACT or College Board. ACT, SAT, and MCA test scores are valid for 5 years. ALEKS test scores are valid for 2 years.
  2. Provide your unweighted GPA:
    • Send a high school transcript with your unweighted GPA to 正规赌博十大网站 for placement.  High school GPA is valid for 10 years.
    • If you intend to participate in 正规赌博十大网站 athletics, you will need to send an official, final high school transcript for eligibility purposes. This transcript can also be used for placement.

Students who have attended any college or university (even if they withdrew), completed college-level English, or would like other courses to be evaluated for credit will need to submit official college transcripts prior to placement.

4.Complete Thrive in the Hive (orientation)

All new, degree-seeking students for Summer and Fall 2024 must complete the new student Orientation course through D2L (Desire 2 Learn/Brightspace) called Thrive in the Hive.  Admitted students will be enrolled in the course once placement materials are on file. Steps 1-4 must be completed prior to receiving an advising/registration appointment. PSEO students for Fall 2024 will be required to complete the PSEO Thrive in the Hive.
