Forms & Resources

While attending RVC, you may need to make changes to your student account, request registration changes, apply for graduation, or request transcripts. In order to make this process easier, the forms are outlined below:

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act is designed to protect the rights and privacy of students and their records. This form allows a student to give any individual of their choice the right to review and obtain student records and information.

FERPA Authorization Form

The purpose of this form is to inform Rock Valley College of a change in student information, such as contact information (address, phone, email, etc.), or your social security number. 

Information Update Form

This form is designed to help students change their legal name or select a chosen/preferred name.
