Academic and Transfer Advising

Advising Requirement

As an RVC student you are required to meet with an academic advisor each semester until you reach 18 college credits. 

Please discuss this requirement with an academic advisor at the end of your new student Educational Planning Session if you believe this requirement should not apply to you.

Our advisors can help you focus on how to achieve your goals, help you determine the appropriate classes to complete your academic goals, and make you aware of educational career opportunities at RVC now, and four-year colleges you might consider later.
