Choosing the right college can sometimes mean choosing between affordability and prestige, but with co-enrollment between Richard Bland College and William & Mary, you can have it all.
Richard Bland College (RBC), a two-year selective residential college, offers students the exciting opportunity to co-enroll at The College of William & Mary (W&M), a cutting-edge research university in historic Williamsburg, Virginia.
Co-Enrollment is a Path to Success
Co-enrollment between RBC and William & Mary offers students the best of both worlds: 2 year college affordability and 4-year university academics. Many students are already taking advantage of the countless benefits of this co-enrollment option!
We’re proud to share that one of our students from China, Jack, has been accepted into the RBC/William & Mary co-enrollment program and is currently taking 2 classes in their major at the College of William & Mary, all while paying RBC’s affordable tuition fees
When Jack finished his time at RBC, he would have completed the first two years of his bachelor’s degree. He will also have guaranteed admission to William & Mary once he’s ready to transfer.
What Makes RBC’s Co-Enrollment Program So Great?
RBC offers state-of-the-art facilities, gorgeous on-campus housing, and stress-free credit transfers with over 40 partner universities. The co-enrollment partnership with William & Mary lets you take advantage of a great college experience while incurring less debt than attending all four years at a traditional university.
Students who co-enroll receive:
- Free transportation to and from William & Mary
- RBC tuition prices for William & Mary courses—saving up to US $1,800 per class
- Transferable courses in your desired major
- Easier transition to the William & Mary main campus, with the chance to make friends before transferring
But most importantly, the co-enrollment program makes attending William & Mary, one of the top public universities in the U.S., a more affordable reality.
The Historic College of William & Mary
How many other colleges can say they’ve been run by two former presidents (George Washington and John Tyler), a former British Prime Minister (Margaret Thatcher) and a former U.S. Secretary of State (Henry A. Kissinger)? Not that many!
Even though William & Mary is steeped in history—it’s the second oldest college in the U.S., dating back to 1693—it remains one of the most cutting-edge research universities in the country. U.S. News & World Report listed William & Mary as #6 on their list of Top Public Schools in the U.S. for 2018.
Beyond its history and prestige, William & Mary is a desirable college for many students for the following reasons:
- Research university capabilities with a liberal arts college feel
- Smaller class sizes (12:1 student to faculty ratio)
- Over 40 undergraduate degree programs and over 40 graduate and professional degree programs
- NCAA Div-I athletics
