Rock Valley College will offer two primary modes of instruction for courses this fall: online and hybrid. The face-to-face portion of hybrid classes will include social distancing, and may result in reduced capacity to allow for six-foot social distancing requirements.

Students who already registered for fall courses are being contacted directly to make any necessary adjustments to their course schedules. The answers to many questions students or parents may have about RVC’s fall semester can be found at
