HAMLET — Fall semester at Richmond Community College starts next Wednesday, Aug. 17, and students enrolled will have access to a variety of resources as classes get underway.

MOBILE APP

The RichmondCC mobile app is now available to students who want quick access to important college information and resources. The app can be downloaded to both Android and iPhones.

Once the Ellucian GO App is downloaded and installed on a student’s phone, he or she can access the following:

• Moodle

• Student Email

• Webadvisor

• Helpdesk

• Campuses Map

• About (College’s address, main phone number, and web page)

• Grades

Faculty and staff who download the app also have quick access to their email, grades and class rosters. Information on how to download the Ellucian GO app is available at http://richmondcc.edu/contact-us/get-app.

OFFICE365

RichmondCC students also now have free access to Microsoft Office products, including Word and Excel. Office365 is provided for all students, faculty and staff at RichmondCC at no cost.

Office365 also provides students, faculty and staff one terabyte of storage through Microsoft’s One Drive application that can be used to back up personal files or share them with others. In addition,

the College has licensing in place to provide students, faculty and staff a copy of Microsoft Office that can be downloaded and installed on their personal computer. Office365 can be accessed through the College’s website: www.richmondcc.edu.

ONLINE TUTORING

Partnering with the online tutoring platform Upswing, RichmondCC has opened the door for students to have access to tutoring any time of the day, any day of the week.

Through Upswing’s online platform, students are able to connect with Upswing’s network of coaches, who provide academic support at times when the College’s tutors may be unavailable, such as at night or during weekends. Students will be able to get help with classes at times that best suit their schedule, and there is no cost to students to use the online resource.

Upswing is another free resource for students, giving them the tools to be successful in the classroom. Students can access their personalized Upswing portal at www.richmondcc.upswing.io.

THERE’S STILL TIME TO ENROLL

On-going registration for new students for fall semester is being held daily on the College’s main campus in Hamlet and at the Honeycutt Center in Laurinburg. Final registration will be held Aug. 15 and 16.

Anyone interested in enrolling this fall at RichmondCC should complete the free application process online at www.richmondcc.edu/admissions. During registration, students will meet with an advisor and schedule their classes.
