Rock Valley College is hosting a series of Registration Events this summer to help students build their fall schedules. RVC staff work individually with students at these events to answer questions and get students registered for classes.
The next Registration Event will be Thursday, June 26, from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the Student Center on RVC's main campus (3301 North Mulford Road).
Current students or incoming students who have already completed the Getting Started steps can finish the process. Students who wish to attend RVC in the fall who have not completed the Getting Started steps may also attend these registration events to receive personal assistance in getting started at RVC.

McKinnon will be signing autographs and posing for pictures from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Student Center. McKinnon played wide receiver for the Chicago Bears from 1983 to 1989 and caught 31 passes for 555 yards and seven touchdowns in the Bears Super Bowl winning 1985 season.
