Open Admissions

Reading Area Community College has an open admission policy, which means that any student may be eligible for enrollment after the completion of certain steps. These steps include placement testing. Based on their placement test scores, some students without a high school diploma or G.E.D. may be required to complete coursework in Community Education prior to enrolling in credit courses.

**Please note that after Summer 2012, new students without a high school diploma or G.E.D. will not be eligible for financial aid. We strongly encourage all students to complete their high school diploma or G.E.D. prior to enrolling at RACC. A high school diploma will be considered valid if it was granted by a high school that has been verified by ACT and has a high school code listed online at

College entrance examinations, such as the ACT or SAT, are not required, but they may be used to waive portions of the placement test. High school transcripts, G.E.D. certificates, and prior college transcripts must be submitted to complete the application file and may be used as a basis for admission to some selective admission programs of study.

Selective Programs

RACC's open admissions policy does not guarantee acceptance into a specific program of study. Some programs have requirements that must be met in order for students to secure licensure or certification upon completion of the program. Other factors include limitations on enrollment based upon availability of college or community facilities used for practice experience. These programs may consider your academic performance in both high school and college, in addition to other factors, when making decisions about program qualifications.

Student Data

RACC uses data collected through the application for admissions to better understand our students. Some data are also reported to outside agencies as required by law. Students attending postsecondary institutions may opt-out of Pennsylvania-mandated data collection by completing the Postsecondary Data Collection Opt-Out Form.
