About Our College
In 1967 an abandoned prison compound in Hertford County was purchased. A fund to establish a 2-year vocational and technical training institution was provided by the North Carolina General Assembly. The institution was originally founded as a technical institute. In 1981, Roanoke-Chowan Technical Institute was renamed to Roanoke-Chowan Technical College. In 1987, the institution was again renamed to Roanoke-Chowan Community College.
