COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus)

Our community matters to us. As RDC responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to follow health and government directives as we make decisions. Our actions will ensure that we do what is right for our College community to keep everyone as healthy and safe as possible during these dynamic and changing circumstances.

Learning this Winter 

RDC will offer a mix of in-person, online and blended classes for Winter 2021 Term. Following Alberta Health protocols, we will be increasing in-person course, service delivery and student experiences for Winter Term.

Learning this Fall  

Most of RDC’s classes will be delivered online for Fall Term 2020, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but there will be some in-person instruction for shops, labs or other courses, where this is deemed essential to support student learning.

Returning to Campus 

Even though most classes and services will be online, there will still be some in-person teaching, learning, services and other in-person activities on RDC’s campus this fall. We’ve developed important information for those coming to RDC, as well as a look at campus life this fall.

Staying Up-to-Date 

Winter 2021 Term: First Week of Classes Update (November 16, 2020) - As we plan for the future, reviewing the situation at RDC and witnessing an increasing number of COVID-19 cases across Alberta, RDC has identified that the first week of RDC’s Winter 2021 Term (January 4 to 8, 2021) will be conducted fully online for all courses, labs and seminars.  

This was not an easy decision, but one that we feel is in the best interests of keeping our students, faculty and staff as healthy and safe as possible during this difficult time. more
