RVC competes in NJCAA Division III in men's and women's basketball, women's volleyball, golf, baseball, softball, men's and women's tennis, and men's and women's soccer. Not to brag, but we're pretty good at it. Our teams have won 11 national championships and we have had more than 130 All-Americans.
Whether your plan is to take classes and transfer to a four-year university or enter one of our career programs designed to get you into the workforce right away, Rock Valley College has what you are looking for. Select from one of our more than 60 transfer areas or more than 30 career programs.
Whether you are new to the college or know your way around, we have a variety of services designed to help you succeed. We're here for you every step of the way.
At Rock Valley College, you're not just a number. Our highly respected faculty have master's degrees, doctorates and real-world experience. You won't be competing for attention in a huge lecture hall. Our average class size is 21, so you'll get a chance to interact, challenge and be challenged by your instructors.
The Estelle M. Black Library at Rock Valley College features nearly 75,000 volumes and more than 650 periodicals, and access to the interlibrary loan system. It also features spaces for individual and group study, and if you get thirsty, there's a coffee shop in the lobby!
Rock Valley College invites anyone who is thinking about going to college to come see what RVC has to offer at the next Explore RVC events on Monday, October 13 and Tuesday, November 11. The events will begin at 9:00 a.m. in the Student Center Atrium on RVC’s main campus (3301 North Mulford Road).
Prospective students who attend will hear from RVC faculty members on how students can be successful in the classroom. There will also be an Information Fair featuring numerous Student Services departments from RVC, including Financial Aid, Career Services, and Student Life. Finally, attendees will have an opportunity to select from various academic areas and can speak to faculty from that area and visit the facilities related to that field of study.
Tours of the entire campus will be available after the events upon request.
Parents are welcome to attend as well.
