Information for HS Counselors
Rock Valley College appreciates the valuable role area high school guidance counselors play in helping students transition to RVC. We also understand how critical it is for you to have the information at your fingertips to help facilitate those transitions. It is our hope to provide you all the most current information you need regarding college planning and getting started at RVC.
