The RTC Experience


RTC Logo

Students succeed at RTC.

Renton Technical College is a nationally recognized college committed to helping our diverse student population succeed. Our 66 percent completion rate is the highest in the state among community and technical colleges - and among the highest in the country. And 82 percent of our graduates are employed nine months after graduation. 

We are a vibrant, inclusive community that embraces students from all backgrounds. We meet students where they are and move them toward greater opportunity. Our student body is 69 percent students of color, and we welcome immigrants, veterans, students with disabilities - anyone who wants to succeed in college. 

RTC offers a breadth of short- and long-term programs, apprenticeships, college transfer options, and applied bachelor’s degrees in information technology. Some of our courses are offered in the evening or in an online or hybrid format to fit your schedule and needs. 

Our Guided Pathways model helps students find the right path and help them finish their programs faster. To make it simpler, we have grouped our programs into seven Areas of Study: Advanced Manufacturing, Business Management, Culinary Arts, Health & Human Services, Information Technology, and Transportation Technology. Our College and Career Pathways programs offer English, math, and high school completion courses to prepare students to transition into career training courses.
