4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The Vet Tech program offers hands on learning with almost the entire 1st floor dedicated to the program with labs and surgical rooms. The workload is pretty light compared to other colleges.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: RCC offers a variety of programs including but not limited to: Vet Tech, Massage Therapy, Medical Assistant, Business and Marketing, Paralegal etc.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: RCC places you at a job in your field of study immediately upon graduation.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: RCC is extremely flexible. If you work at night - they have day classes. If you work during the day - they have evening classes. On top of that classes are ONLY Monday through Thursday! Definitely can't beat only going to school 4 days a week!

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I'm in the Vet Tech program and everything we learn in the program is completely hands on. You can't beat that. No amount book-learning can teach you the skills you need faster than simply doing it yourself.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely LOVE RCC. I think it's a great school for people who don't necessarily want to go to a larger college or university. It's a very intimate school and thats what I love. You never feel out of place, and the professors are all really awesome at helping you with anything you need.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: All of RCC campus resources are great. The student center staff is very helpful with anything you need, the library is a little small, but it has everything you could really need in it.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The computer labs are awesome. The computers are pretty fast, the internet is good, the network is rarely ever down, printing is free, and you don't really need to have a personal computer as the computer labs are open mon-thurs til 10 and fri-sat until 4.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: RCC has a joint classroom and online course. All homework is turned in online, however you learn the material in a classroom.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: One of the major things that set RCC apart from other schools is the smaller classroom sizes (no more than 15-20 students per class). Another awesome thing is that RCC actually places you in a job that has to do with your field of study immediately after graduation. The staff is very helpful and they all have excellent attitudes.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: The student body at RCC is diverse enough that nobody looks, acts or dresses the same but not so diverse that you feel like you don't fit in.

3 College Senior

Career Services: RCC claims to have a very dedicated Career Services Department. I have not fully experienced their help/input at this stage of my college education. I am hoping that they will like up to their boasts and help me to locate and secure a better job in my chosen career path.

College Senior

Online Courses: I have not taken any online courses from RCC.

College Senior

Campus Resources: This is a career college. They do not have a facility with any extra activities. It is mostly set up to include class specific outlets. i/e laboratory. There is a small library available for some class resources.

2 College Senior

Campus Resources: They have all of the cutting edge technology, but the network is so slow that it seems to take forever to access a computer. Login takes a bit time complete and once on the internet it is ridiculously slow. Also, the online program that instructors use to enter homework and grades is not alway compatible with one or more internet explorer programs making it impossible to get necessary information for class.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: They will place you right after graduation!

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is VERY high, but it's worth the buck.

4 College Senior

Career Services: From the time you enroll till the time you graduate the staff at the college help to prepare you for finding a job after you have your degree. After graduation though the services don't stop, the career planners continue to help you search for a job and help place you in the field you studied for.

5 College Senior

Student Body: There are students from all walks of life enrolled and applying to the college, from different ages to different races the student body at Rockford Career College runs the gambit from a sixty year old woman in the massage program wanting to help with her husbands arthritis to an 18 year old boy wanting to become a computer tech because he is such a wiz at it and it comes natural to him.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The college is a very course oriented environment, each of the courses has it's own designated area where the classes and sessions are conducted. From the business and paralegal rooms upstairs to the massage therapy rooms full of massage tables the college allows students their own space when working on their degree and it really helps to focus on what's important to you.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: The online class is really great for me, you have a lot of flexibility on when you do your work assigned. For me, I work full-time as well as go to school so I benefit a lot from this.

1 College Senior

Academic Experience: The vet tech program here is horrible. The teachers are all catty and rude. They don't care about the true quality of education. They take everything on a personal level. Oh and if you are over 30 and are thinking about this program, forget it. The teachers deliberately single out the older students, sometimes even humiliating the student verbally in front of 20 other classmates.

1 College Senior

Academic Experience: They make the workload impossibly hard on purpose to "weed out" the students that aren't smart enough or have a strong enough drive in their opinion. Be prepared to be screamed at by teachers when you are a second year student. If you complain they put a note in your transcript and are what we students call "blacklisted." Completely unprofessional. the material the teach is not consistent. one teacher will tell you one thing, and a different teacher will tell you something completely different.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: While the teacher was knowledgeable, the grading seemed a bit harsh at times. Overall, the online classes were much better than the traditional classes.

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Hard to get a schedule. Nobody ever in office, availbel to see you. I also call in and they never see you in teh evening which sucked when I was a night student and wanted to get in right before class started at 530. Also, no Saturday appointments. They forget to call me back always. Otherwise, when they need me to do something, the will chase me down and make sure it is ready to go.
