Getting Started at Riverside City College

Thank you for your interest in the world-renown Riverside City College Marching Band Programs!

Our most-asked question is: “Do I have to be a student at RCC to participate in the band programs?” Answer…YES!
All of our programs are classes at Riverside City College, and only students may participate. HOWEVER, unlike sports, you don’t have to be a full-time student (enrolled in 12+ units) or even a part-time student (enrolled in 6+ units). You ONLY have to be enrolled in the class that corresponds to the RCC Marching Band Program you’re participating in.

FIRST: You must apply for admission to Riverside City College, and unlike most or all universities, it’s FREE! Applying for admission is NOT the same as registering for or enrolling in classes. Applying for admission is essentially you telling RCC you want to attend.

NOTE: Continuing Students (enrolled in the previous term) do not need to apply. ONLY New Students (never enrolled in RCC classes before) and Returning Students (not enrolled in the previous term) need to apply.

TO APPLY FOR ADMISSION: Click Application Steps and follow the instructions. Once your application has been submitted, you’ll receive a confirmation email immediately. Your application will take approximately 72 hours or “three business days” (weekends and holidays excluded) to be processed. After your application has been processed, you’ll receive another email with your Student ID number, WebAdvisor User Name, and RCC Email Address. Once you’ve receive the second email, or if you’re a continuing student, return here and click Registration Steps and follow those instructions.

NEXT: Click Potential Member and fill it out. This Google form allows us to learn about you. Please continue to explore our website to familiar yourself with it’s contents.

The RCC Marching Band Director is James Rocillo (Associate Professor, Music), and assisting him is Kurt Kilgus (Music Specialist). Their contact information is below in the website footer.
