What Students Are Saying

3.12 Average Rating
Red Rocks is a great school. I am 26 years old and work full time, and Red Rocks made it really easy for me to go to school online. I loved all of the classes I took over the last two years and I would recommend every single one of my teachers. I felt that each teacher was passionate about teaching and was very active in engaging students, which I k ow is not always easy. I have found that when I am on a school break, I long to be back in school and I think that part of the reason for this is because Red Rocks is a great school. One more thing I would like to add that I particularly liked about RRCC is the small campus!!
Manda from Thornton, CO
A school where the faculty cares about the students. Class sizes are small and tuition is low. This school is a great value when compared to the larger state universities!
