Testing Center

The Testing Center is available by appointment only for the following tests: ATI/TEAS, CISCO, CLEP, CNA, CompTIA, FAA, Illinois State Police, MOS, NREMT and Paramedic.  Please call us at 815-921-2385 or e-mail at for more information or to schedule an appointment.

ACCUPLACER/Placement Testing is not being administered.  Students may use the Guided Self-Placement procedures to determine their first English, reading and mathematics course at RVC. If none of those placement methods provide sufficient placement, the College is deferring placement testing during the COVID-19 health crisis.  For information on the deferment form and placement testing updates, please check out our Placement Requirements.

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a national program of credit by examination that gives you the opportunity to receive college credit for what you already know.
