RDC suspends Music Diploma program

The Students’ Association received notification yesterday, May 10, that RDC has suspended intake into the Music Diploma program. This will likely lead to the end of the diploma. We are disappointed elected student representatives were among the last to receive this news.

We are saddened by the suspension of the program and are determined to support students impacted by the decision. As per College Policy, program offerings will continue for two years to allow students to complete their diplomas. We will work with students currently enrolled in the program to ensure that they have access to the necessary resources and information.

The Students’ Association is committed to representing students as the College undergoes its transition to university status. Students with concerns or questions, please contact Students’ Association President Chaise Combs via email at sardc-president(at)rdc.ab.ca; in person in room 2010 or by phone at 403-342-3200

Students’ Association pleased
degree-granting approved for RDC

The Students’ Association of Red Deer College is pleased the government has approved degree-granting status for Red Deer College. The change means Red Deer College will be able to pursue granting its own degrees, in addition to certificates, diplomas, applied and collaborative degrees and apprenticeship training.

Students have been lobbying for degree-granting at RDC for decades. Student leaders have organized multiple campaigns including 1992’s trip to the Legislature to lobby for degrees and 2016’s postcard campaign which saw postcards signed by Central Albertans supporting degree-granting delivered to the Legislature.
