Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Rock Valley College
The school is great community college, somewhat ok range of classes but the biggest thing is the advisors. Needed help transferring and guidance but every question I asked was “ask the college” everytime. All they did was look at the program evaluation which I did at home already but except they didn’t even check if my registered classes were ok... Terrible Advisors.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Most of the Professors are top notch. I learned so much from RVC and I can’t say the same about the school I transferred to.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
80% of the professors here are great! But customer service SUCKS! I've ironically taken a couple of customer service courses here. You'll call to ask a simple question & some 18 year old who doesn't even know what they are doing will hang up on you! Happens all of the time. Plus you will be sent to a random department that has nothing to do with what you need. I finished all of my Graphic Design classes 3 years ago & STILL haven't revived my Certificate. I tested out of Into To Photoshop (twice) & took Advanced Photoshop. Then they told me that I can't get my certificate unless I have Intro To Photoshop? The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. They loose paperwork like nobody's business. I spent 4 years at this school & it was pretty fun at times. The professors really care. But the accounting office needs to get their S*%T together.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Some teachers are great , the sad part is the computer lab, I was printing 3 essays for 3 different classes and the lady in charge of the lab take out the paper from the printer because we are only allow to print a maximum of 20 pages so 1 of essays was incomplete thanks to this lady. Is ridiculous that if we pay our tuition and fee labs why we can’t print our complete homework ... so mad, is not that I was printing garbage , at least she could wait without interruption and then told me that I couldn’t print more than 20 pages !!!!!Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
From start to finish my experience here was great. Yes there are some professors that are more favorable but overall RVC left me ready to transfer. The college experience here was good too. They have an abundance of resources for students, and they have classes that fit perfectly into my lifestyle.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
