Certain Associate in Applied Science degrees and certificate programs might not be available at Rock Valley College. Because of this, the college has contractual agreements with other community colleges for specific programs at specific colleges. Students take all specialized courses at the cooperative college and pay tuition and fees according to the in-district rate at that institution. Related technical and general education courses required by the cooperative programs may be taken at Rock Valley College or the community college offering the program. The cooperating college will issue all degrees or certificates for successful completion of the individual program.
