RVC Pathway Applicants

The Rock Valley College (RVC) Pathway to Illinois program gives RVC students the opportunity to earn their undergraduate degree at UIUC.


  • You have to be enrolled at RVC, and it must be your primary institution.
  • No application is required for the program. By the time you’ve earned 30 graded hours at RVC, you just need to complete our Transfer Agreement Form, which will be shared with both RVC and UIUC.
  • You have to complete 60 transferable hours of college credit by your term of entry at UIUC.

Admissions Process

  • You can work toward admission to any of our 150+ majors.
  • Twice a semester you'll talk to an UIUC advisor, who will assist you in carefully selecting your coursework to make sure you're staying on track for admission to UIUC.
  • You'll be offered admission to UIUC as long as all you've met all requirements as posted in the Transfer Handbook. The competitiveness of admission to certain programs will depend on the quality of the applicant pool each year.
