Spring fever? Think summer and fall!

The warmth of spring has many of us thinking about planning vacations and spending time outside. I would like to invite you to also consider spending some time thinking about and planning your own education. Rock Valley College has a lot going on right now to help you explore your interests and your educational options. On April 22 and 23, we invite you to ‘Explore RVC’. Stop by to learn about our degree programs and the variety of student support services available to make your experience successful. You can also get tips for starting and completing your Financial Aid paperwork, tour our beautiful campus, and meet with college staff ready to assist you in completing all the necessary enrollment paperwork. Please call 815-921-4250 for more information and/or to schedule a group or individual tour.

If you are ready to complete, or already have completed, the enrollment form and need some help figuring out how to get started selecting and registering for courses, please schedule an Educational Planning Session. These sessions are offered daily and are designed to introduce new students to all of our degree and course options and to assist you in selecting courses for your first semester. Registering is easy at 815-921-4094 or at our website.

Finally, to ensure that your college experience gets off to a good start, most colleges and universities offer their students and first year student seminar course. At RVC, that course is Student Development 100 or STU100. This one credit hour course introduces our newest students to all of the tools and resources you will need to be a successful RVC student. Small class sizes and conversations designed to answer all the questions about college that everyone thinks about, but no one wants to ask.

So, while you’re thinking spring go ahead and think summer and fall course registration while you’re at it.
