Rock Valley College

Graduation Evaluation Fridays

Students who believe they will have acquired enough credits to complete their degree or certificate program by the end of the spring semester must apply for graduation before the March 1, 2019 deadline. 

Steps you should be taking now regardless of if you plan to participate in the Commencement ceremony in May 2019:

1. Meet with an advisor as soon as possible to have your credits evaluated.

Choose from the following options to meet with an advisor:

  • Schedule an appointment with an academic advisor by calling (815) 921-4100.
  • You may stop in to the Open Advising Lab, located on the second floor of the Student Center. The open lab hours are Mondays through Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
  • Academic and Transfer Advising will be taking walk-ins for the sole purpose of evaluating credits for potential graduates. You do not need an appointment. Come during the allotted hours on any of the following days:
    • 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, February 15
    • 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, February 22
    •  8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 1

Check in at the Advising Desk (NOT the Open Advising Lab) on the second floor of the Student Center.

2. Fill out a graduation application. No matter which option you choose from above for meeting with an advisor, you will need to tell the advisor you need your credits evaluated for graduation and you will be required to fill out a graduation application. You can either fill out an application in advance by going to the graduation page on the RVC website or fill one out with the advisor during your appointment.
