Educational Planning Sessions

After you have enrolled at Rock Valley College and have completed the placement process (Accuplacer test or ACT/SAT scores which waive the Accuplacer Test), the next step is to register for and attend an Educational Planning Session.

This session is required for all new students before registering for classes. The purpose of the EPS is to familiarize students with information needed to successfully transition to RVC, learn about degree options, and to register for classes.  You have two options to complete this requirement: 


1. Complete the EPS presentation online and then sign up for a 75 minute, face-to-face New Student Group Advising Session on campus.  

Upon completion of the EPS presentation, you will be directed to sign up for a 75 minute, face-to-face New Student Group Advising Session on campus. 

OR

2. Sign up for a 2 hour, face-to-face session on campus

YOU MUST HAVE FILLED OUT AN ENROLLMENT INFORMATION FORM AT ROCK VALLEY COLLEGE AND YOU MUST HAVE TAKEN THE PLACEMENT TEST (OR RECEIVED A WAIVER FROM THE PLACEMENT TEST) BEFORE YOU ATTEND AN EDUCATIONAL PLANNING SESSION.
