How to...

Research College of Nursing’s email is used for all official college communication. For access, students must complete the Research College of Nursing/HCA IT&S Access Request Form (included in the admission packet) and fax to (816)995-2813 or email to the Registrar at Camelia.Williams@researchcollege.edu.

Students are notified via personal email by the Registrar of their user ID and temporary password. To set up RCoN email on home computers and/or phones, students should contact our Director of Technology for assistance.

Students are responsible for regularly checking their RCoN email for official college communication, such as registration, course changes, policy changes, and other essential information.

Students are assigned an academic advisor by their track coordinator after they are fully admitted. The advisor will collaborate with students on the development of a plan of study.

To register for classes, students work with their advisor to select classes consistent with their plan of study. Meetings occur in person, or by telephone or virtual conferencing, as determined by the advisor. Once the registration form is complete, the advisor submits the form to the Registrar. The Registrar will email a confirmation to the student.
