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 13 national championships and we have had more than 140 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!
Have fun. Try stuff. RVC gives you opportunities to get involved. There are lots of student activities to choose from. We offer more than 20 clubs and organizations. Try your hands at student government. Join the staff of our campus newspaper. What's it going to be?

Students who are thinking about attending Rock Valley College might have some questions about how to get started, how certain processes work, or may just need some advice or guidance as they get ready to make a decision about college. Many times students have these questions but are not sure who to ask or how to go about asking them. That's why RVC is hosting a live chat on Facebook on Wednesday, July 9, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. to allow prospective students to ask questions that will be answered by RVC staff.
Experts on each of the "getting started" steps at RVC will be on hand to respond to questions and concerns. Current RVC students who may have specific questions about registration may also take advantage of this opportunity.
Registration for the fall semester is open now. For more information on how to get started at RVC you may also call (815) 921-4250 or visit rockvalleycollege.edu/getstarted.
