Community College To Accept Students For Fall Classes



A community college has been formed in northwestern Pennsylvania to offer post-secondary educational courses to residents in a region previously underserved.

Across Pennsylvania, nearly all residents have access to affordable, local community college courses, but until the Rural Regional College of Northern Pennsylvania (RRC), those living in this region were only able to access more expensive classes from four-year universities, with campuses mostly located in more metropolitan areas.

Residents in nine counties–Cameron, Crawford, Elk, Erie, Forest, McKean, Potter, Venango and Warren—can take courses at the non-traditional college, which offers the classes via interactive television at satellite locations in smaller communities throughout the region.
