The registration deadline for in-person classes is any time before the class begins (as long as the class is not at capacity). If registering for an online class, it's best to register one day prior to the class. (Zoom information for online classes is emailed on the afternoon prior to the class start date). If you are registering the day before a class starts, you will need to bring payment in the form of cash or check to the CLR office at the Bell School Road Center (3350 N. Bell School Rd., Rockford, IL 61114).

CLR is not currently set up to take online payments. You will need to fill out the registration form, attach payment, and mail to the CLR office at Rock Valley College – CLR, 3301 N. Mulford Rd., Rockford, IL 61114 or bring to the CLR office during our normal business hours. If outside of our business hours, you can place registration and payment in the drop box outside the west entrance of the Bell School Road Center.

If your class is IN-PERSON, confirm your classes with your student schedule and arrive at the assigned location of the class at the scheduled date/time. The CLR facilitator assigned to the class will direct you from there.

If your class is ONLINE via Zoom, you will receive an email with the Zoom link to your class along with any handouts that have been provided by the instructor on the afternoon prior to the class start date.

If you wish to cancel from a class, you must do so at least one day prior to the scheduled start date in order to receive a refund. There is a $5 per class cancellation fee and no refunds are given after a class begins. If you know you will be unable to attend a class, it would be appreciated of you let the office know. If a class has a waiting list, it allows someone else the opportunity to register for the class.

NOTE: Not all online CLR classes will be recorded. It is highly recommended to contact the CLR office prior to your online class meeting date/time to ensure that there will be a recording of a specific class. These recordings will only be available for two weeks after the class has ended. Once the two weeks have elapsed, the link will no longer be active and you will no longer be able to access it. Recordings of online classes are typically available for viewing 1-5 days after the class has ended. COLLEGE COLLABORATION CLASSES HOSTED BY OTHER COMMUNITY COLLEGES ARE NOT RECORDED.

The CLR library is open during the CLR office hours (Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM).
