Advising Requirement

As an RVC student you are required to meet with an academic advisor each semester until you reach 18 college credits. 

Here's why you should register for an advising session:

  • Identify your career goals and get on a path to graduation

  • Prepare for priority registration to determine the necessary classes to achieve your academic goals and graduate on time

  • Avoid taking classes you don't really need

Call (815) 921-4100 to schedule an advising appointment.

Please discuss this requirement with an academic advisor at the end of your new student Educational Planning Session if you believe this requirement should not apply to you.
