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.
In 2018, RDC received approval to become a university, offering our own degrees. The College continues to grow programs across a breadth of credentials as we transition to become a polytechnic university during the next three to five years. Once this transition is complete, RDC will officially be known as Red Deer University.
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.

Red Deer College is on the road to becoming a greener campus for a more environmentally friendly future. The RDC Green Campus Task Group has an important goal: to inform and educate the College community about the importance of energy and water conservation and other pertinent environmental issues. We establish targets and implement protocols for the reduction, recycling, and re-use of materials. Programs are also initiated to encourage the use of alternate transportation, increase recycling and improve energy conservation.
RDC will strive to increase the amount of recycling done on our campuses by educating our College community and encouraging them to incorporate environmentally friendly practices:
Daily, hourly or short-term visitor parking is available in public lots (east or west) at the main campus.
