River Parishes Community College is conveniently located between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. RPCC’s main campus is nestled in Ascension Parish serving the river region area by providing opportunities for educational and economic stability. The River Parishes region is the ‘Gateway’ to a glorious and sublime portrait of time and people spanning more than five centuries. The area is an immense collection of diverse histories, cultures, cuisine, lifestyles, and where art, agriculture and industry meld to echo yesterday and today. The region’s bustling manufacturing economy drives much of Louisiana’s economy. RPCC has multiple industry partners that contribute their time, talents and treasures to educate and skill the people of the region.
RPCC is a comprehensive community college accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award associate degrees.

Spread across four parishes (counties) RPCC operates the Gonzales Campus (main campus), United Way of St., Charles Campus, Westside Campus, and the Reserve Campus. Each campus represents the highest quality and access to academic, adult education, and workforce training programs throughout the River Parishes.
