25 Years


In the coming months, Norco College celebrates an important milestone: It will be 25​ years since the College opened its doors. Under the support of RCCD, college classes were regularly taught at various locations in Norco-Corona as early as the 1970s.

Riverside Community College leaders first began to dream about a branch campus in the area at about the same time. On June 4, 1985, that dream was realized when more than 141 acres of U.S. government-owned land—the site of what would become Norco College—were acquired by RCCD for one dollar to build a satellite campus.
