Red Deer College (RDC) is a comprehensive community college serving 7,500 full-and part-time credit and apprenticeship students, and more than 38,000 youth and adult learners in the School of Continuing Education. New program development has RDC well-positioned as it transitions to a polytechnic over the next three to five years.
As a polytechnic, RDC will continue to offer over 100 program options including apprenticeship, certificates, diplomas, university transfer, degree completion programs with partner universities, and its own applied and baccalaureate degrees, allowing students to remain at RDC for the duration of their program.
Applied learning and small class sizes, with a variety of student services and clubs, along with a historic RDC Athletics program of 24 national championships and 166 Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) team and individual titles, make Red Deer College a great choice for students.
The College has expanded its teaching, learning, athletic and living spaces with the additions of the state-of-the-art Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre/Centre des Jeux du Canada Gary W. Harris, Alternative Energy Lab and construction of a new Residence which all enhance RDC’s Alternative Energy Initiative.
Red Deer College’s main campus is strategically situated on 290 acres of Alberta’s natural landscape along Queen Elizabeth II Highway. RDC is also proud to serve its Donald School of Business students housed at a downtown campus, located in the Millennium Centre, in addition to housing teaching and learning space at the Welikoklad Event Centre.
