College Visits

College Admissions Recruiter Visits

College admissions recruiters visit RHS frequently in the fall and throughout the winter. Visits are scheduled at different times during the day. Listen to the daily announcements for dates and times. There will be a sign up sheet in the office.  Juniors and seniors are encouraged to attend. This gives the opportunity to find out what questions to ask, find out about the college, and some recruiters even offer to waive admissions fees for the students who visit with them.

Student College Visitation Policy

College visitations can be arranged during the second semester of the junior year (one visit) and the senior year (two visits). The visits MUST be pre-arranged and the attendance office must be provided with documentation of the visitation. These days will not be counted as absences.

NCAA Eligibility

A prospective student-athlete is someone who is looking to participate in intercollegiate athletics at an NCAA Division I or Division II institution in the future.  Seniors planning to participate in college sports need to see the counselor for the NCAA Eligibility forms and processing information at the beginning of the year. It is the responsibility of the senior athlete to make sure the Eligibility Center has the documents necessary for student certification.
