We have enhanced our application process! All of our forms can be filled out ONLINE and submitted directly to the college. Steps 1-4 can be completed in about 15-30 minutes.
Here are the basic steps for new students to get started with the Retail Management Certificate program.
Step 1 of 4
The first step in the process is applying to Umpqua Community College. UCC does not charge an application fee.
IMPORTANT! For the Planned Course of Study, use the drop-down menu labeled Intended Program of Study and select whichever of the following program options appears:
WAFC Retail Management - CP
- Or -
Business Tech - Retail Mgt - Cert
Only one of the two options will appear in the drop-down menu. Both options are used for enrollment in the RMC Program. Do not select any other program option. Only one of the two options will appear depending upon the term of registration.
SPECIAL NOTICE. RMC students DO NOT have to take a placement exam. Do not attempt the new student orientation UNTIL you begin the RMC pre-work course. Once your registration is processed, you will receive a next steps email regarding the pre-work course.
After applying to UCC and obtaining your student ID, please proceed to step 2 below.
Step 2 of 4
Steps 2-4 can be completed in about 5-7 minutes
Once you have received your student id# (at the end of the application process in Step 1), you will need to complete the WAFC/RMC application.
If you have completed any courses at other colleges, you are encouraged to submit your transcripts when applying to the UCC to see if any of them will apply to our program. The WAFC/RMC program consists of the eight-courses. The program can be completed in one to two years, depending on the number of courses completed per term.
You can locate additional program information at the WAFC website.
