Admission Policy

Rock Valley College maintains an open admission policy. There is no deadline for submitting an application; however, it is advantageous to submit it as early as possible to ensure the greatest possible choices of courses at the time of registration. Any students who are applying for a Limited Enrollment Career Program (such as Aviation, Nursing, Respiratory Care, Surgical Technology, and Dental Hygiene) must complete any additional application materials required by the respective department.
