As you’ll see below, there’s truly something for everyone. So choose your category, explore our options, and follow the links to register.

Current RVCC Students

RVCC students: Why wait until fall to start earning credits again? Most of our academic programs offer classes over the summer, allowing you to accelerate your degree or simply balance out your course load evenly throughout the year. We even have online summer classes if the lure of the beach or pool is too much to handle. To view our for-credit course options, click here, select “Course Schedule.,”

College Students Home for the Summer

Many students from NJ state colleges and other 4 year schools find a temporary home at RVCC over the summer. Why? Taking a summer class at a community college provides an affordable way for university students to earn credits while home for summer vacation with their families. It’s easy to transfer credits back to one’s home school (especially with prior approval), and students can focus on a single, challenging subject in order to knock it out of the way when life is less busy. Another plus is that courses can usually be taken on a pass/fail basis so that visiting students can receive credits without affecting their GPA.
