Welcome to UCC. I am glad you are interested in pursuing your certificate through UCC and look forward to working with you.
Once you are ready to move forward, the first step in the process is applying to Umpqua Community College. We do not charge an application fee, so it is a fairly quick process that takes about 15-20 minutes.
When registering you will enroll in the Bus. Tech – Retail Mgmt – Cert program that is sometimes abbreviated R-CERT.
Due to a special Memorandum of Understanding between UCC and the WAFC, all registrations for this program go directly through me, rather than the traditional registration process. This is to ensure that students who are currently employed in the industry, involved in an employer-sponsored program, and are planning to complete the certificate with UCC receive the special tuition rate of $250 per course.
If you completed any courses at other colleges, I encourage you to submit your transcripts when applying to the college to see if any of them will apply to our program. The WAFC/RMC program consists of the eight-courses listed on the application. The program can be completed in one to two years, depending on the number of courses completed per term.
You can locate additional program information at the WAFC website.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
UCC RMC Coordinator
