A Snapshot of Red Deer College

Red Deer College is located in Red Deer, Alberta, halfway between the major centres of Calgary and Edmonton.  

Since 1964, RDC has proudly served our students and communities. RDC offers more than 100 programs, including degrees, certificates, diplomas and skilled trades programs.  

As of July 2021, our institution name is now Red Deer Polytechnic. In 2018, our post-secondary institution received approval to become a degree-granting institution.  Now as a polytechnic institution in central Alberta, we will continue to offer the same breadth of credentials and mix of programs in a variety of subject areas that we currently offer. This means we will continue to offer apprenticeships, certificates, degrees, micro-credentials and degrees as our future takes shape.  

We welcome you to study with us. We also welcome you to join us as a vibrant gathering place in our community. With two campuses and impressive facilities, RDC is an ideal place to learn, work, conduct research and enjoy events

Whatever brings you to RDC, we are glad you are here. And we look forward to having you as a valued member of our College community.
