RCC has attained a national ranking in The Military Times’ Best for Vets Colleges: the best schools for military students in 2019. RCC was ranked 21st among two-year schools nationwide, the second-highest rating for a SUNY school, after Jefferson Community College, which ranked No. 11. The Military Times, an independent news source for current military, veterans, friends and family, surveyed hundreds of colleges across the country and used their answers, coupled with federal data, to rank them in the areas of university culture, academic quality and outcomes, academic policies, student support, and costs and financial aid. RCC was listed with a military graduation (transfer) rate of 63 percent, and with 114 student veterans out of a total enrollment of 5,900. Colleges were ranked in four categories: four-year; two-year; online and nontraditional school; and career and technical colleges.
