The “Completion Agenda” is a national goal for America to lead the world in college graduates by 2020. Community colleges across the country, including Rowan-Cabarrus, are joining together under this goal in a unified effort to increase the rate of postsecondary completion.

“We want our students to come through our doors and get the certificate, diploma, or degree they need to move on with their careers. Completing courses in a condensed period of time is part of that commitment,” said Spalding.

With day, evening, weekend and online classes, Rowan-Cabarrus Community College provides a strong foundation and transferable credits for students advancing to four-year schools and helps adults get the additional training they need to start, change or advance careers. From the 18 year-old high school graduate looking for an economical solution to education to the adult pursuing GED completion courses or English-as-a-Second-Language classes – Rowan-Cabarrus has it all.

Rowan-Cabarrus is located at I-85 (exit 75) and Jake Alexander Boulevard, in Salisbury (North Campus) and at 1531Trinity Church Road, just off I-85 and N.C. 73 at exit 55 (South Campus).
