Student are in
great hands at RVCC.
We offer a variety of support services to help ensure success in college and beyond.
RVCC offers free tutoring in most subject areas to get students through academic challenges.
The Office of Disability Services provides students with disabilities the tools, reasonable accommodations, and support services to participate fully on campus.
We offer a wide range of Academic Advising to help students succeed in college and plan for their future after RVCC.
We understand that the college years can be challenging. RVCC has counselors on staff to support students with free, personal, short-term counseling and also provide referrals for outside providers and housing needs.
If students plan to transfer to a four-year college or university, RVCC offers Transfer Counseling to assist with the process and help select a school that best suits their academic and career goals. We also have workshops to guide them through the process.
Resource Center & Food Bank
RVCC has an on-campus Resource Center & Food Pantry that provides a safe and welcoming space for students to learn about community resources, grab a snack or meal, and/or obtain essential goods, including grocery and personal hygiene items.
Faculty Office Hours
All faculty members have office hours. Students are encouraged to meet with professor during office hours to answer their questions. Students should contact their professors for days, times, and office locations.
Online vs. Traditional Classes
Students may have the opportunity to take both traditional and online classes. Traditional classes are held in-person at specific days and times each week. Online classes work well for students who need the flexibility to study at their own pace, on their own schedule. Important online course information can be found here.
Online courses operate differently than traditional classroom classes, and differently than "distance learning" classes students may have experienced in the past. This short orientation is intended to help students understand the process and expectations in an online course so that they can be successful right away.
Our Office of Career Success & Experiential Learning helps students in a number of ways, including assessing their interests and skills for a major or future career, looking for internships or jobs, and assisting with resume writing and interviewing.
Librarians at the College’s Evelyn S. Field Library help students in a variety of ways, including finding materials and assisting with research for a paper or project.
The College’s Golden Lion Bookstore, conveniently located right on campus, is where students can purchase all of their course materials and supplies, RVCC apparel, snacks, and more. They can even rent books and sell back their lightly used textbooks. Textbooks can also be ordered online through the Bookstore.
