Academic Advising

Students who do not meet established pre-requisites will be required to take developmental courses for placement into college level courses. While these courses do not count toward graduation requirements in any RVCC program, they are required to meet prerequisites for the college level courses in subjects such as English, math, and science. Credits from these courses will be included in the calculation for all three components of the Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress Review. The three components are Cumulative GPA, Qualitative Components, and Quantitative Components. Students are only eligible for federal financial aid for up to 24 hours/credits for this type of coursework.
