Red Deer College's Winter 2021 JumpStart program
RDC's Winter 2021 JumpStart program will be running next term, giving students the opportunity to take a post-secondary course, explore an area of interest and take on a new challenge. Tuition for a JumpStart course is $0, but students are required to pay for any textbooks. Most of RDC’s courses that are eligible within the JumpStart program are being delivered online, potentially making it easier for students to participate. More information is available here. See Ms. Halter if you are interested in participating.

Student Profile Sheet for References
Do you need a reference letter? Scholarships often require references. Start the process by completing a student profile sheet to outline your accomplishments over the past three years. Providing the completed profile sheet to your referees will make writing you a strong reference letter easier.
