Overview

RMC educates and trains on-campus students for careers as commissioned officers in the Canadian Armed Forces.

Through its Division of Continuing Studies, the college provides university education at a distance to hundreds of military and civilian members of the Department of National Defence.

RMC is equally proud of its unique and well-respected graduate programs in the arts, science and in engineering, open to both military and civilian students.

Limited enrolment in the on-campus and graduate programs is maintained through a competition of eligible applicants. Education is free for most on-campus undergraduates because of commitments of military service following graduation; these Officer Cadets also receive an additional monthly salary.

Through the distance education programs, RMC prides itself in offering flexible schedules for students with career and family commitments, accessible courses and degrees, and academic credit for appropriate military and professional experience.

The graduates of RMC have established a reputation of service and achievement throughout the world out of all proportion to their numbers. From the North West Campaign of 1885, through the South African War, the First and Second World Wars, Korea, the Persian Gulf, to the latest peace keeping operations the graduates of RMC have distinguished themselves in all aspects of Canadian military service. Ex-cadets have been similarly prominent in a wide variety of civilian professions.
