Academic, Career, & Transfer Advising By Appointment

If you are unsure about the career you wish to pursue or the classes you want to take, or you are just confused about navigating through your time at RVC, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with an academic advisor.  Academic & Transfer Advisors assist students who are planning to transfer to a college or university, especially those working on transfer degrees (AA, AS, AES).   Career Advisors assist students who are working on Career & Technical Education Programs (AAS degrees and certificates).

Where are we located?

  • Academic & Transfer Advising is located on the second floor of the Student Center on RVC’s Main Campus (3301 North Mulford Road, Rockford, IL 61114). 
  • Career Advising is located in the academic buildings and, for certain programs, at the Advanced Technology Center in Belvidere.  The specific room number and location will be provided to you when you make an appointment. 

Academic Advising Without an Appointment

While we recommend students make an appointment regardless of the situation, we offer walk-in advising for students who have quick questions, are applying to graduate, or who need assistance with registration.  (We require appointments for those needing formalized academic plans and mappings created.)

Walk-in Advising Hours

Monday-Thursday, 10:00-Noon and 1:00-3:00.  Times may vary based on staff availability and time of year.
