For Parents

Preparing for college can be a challenge for both students and parents. The staff and faculty at RVC want to make sure that your student’s experience at RVC is a positive, enjoyable and successful one. We know that you will have questions and concerns along the way so this Web site was developed to give you the information you need to help your student make a smooth transition to college.

We will be updating the Web site frequently with current news, interesting articles and information on important dates and upcoming events. RVC welcomes parent feedback of this site. If you have ideas of ways to improve this service, please feel free to e-mail us.

Parents As Partners


Dr. Jack Becherer, President of Rock Valley College, had the following editorial published in the Rockford Register Star.  The article illustrates how important parents are to their son/daughter’s success in college and why we as a college value them as our partners.
