Becoming a student is just the beginning of the journey. We believe creativity happens outside the lines, and artistic development inside these walls. The student work and success stories are just the result of learning in an environment where you are encouraged to dream, create, and inspire.

Dual Enrollment

RMCAD offers the opportunity for exceptional junior and senior high school students to enroll for college credit while still completing their high school degree.

Dual Enrollment students may take online courses and register for one class in an 8-week term and up to six credits per semester for a total of 12 credits in an academic year.

 

Financial Aid is not available and cannot be used to cover the cost of attendance, books, or supplies—although students may receive financial support from their high school.
