How to Apply for Admission & Register for Classes
RVCC is an open access institution. SAT scores, letters of recommendation or essays are not required for admission.

Step 1 - Apply Online
- Create a Login ID and Password by clicking on "First time user account creation"
- Complete requested information
- Submit application with $25.00 non-refundable application fee

Please allow 24 hours for your application to be processed. Once this is done you will receive an admissions letter from the college in the mail in 7 to 10 business days, along with a student ID number and instructions on registering for classes.

If you are not seeking a degree or certificate at RVCC, you are not required to submit proof of immunization, official high school or college transcripts, or complete placement testing, unless required as proof of meeting course prerequisites.


Step 2 - Register for Classes

You can complete a Registration (ADD/DROP) Form and submit by mail or in person to the RVCC Student Enrollment Center, PO Box 3300, Somerville NJ 08876. The Student Enrollment Center is located on the first floor of the College Center on the Branchburg Campus. You can also fax it to 908.704.3442. *Please wait 24 hours after applying online to submit this form.*

You may need to submit proof of prerequisite requirements (copy of college transcripts, grade reports or a visiting student approval form) from your primary college. Submit this documentation along with the Registration Form. You can only register online once you have received your admission letter in the mail AND if your intended courses do not require prerequisite requirements.

Students are encouraged to receive prior approval from their primary college before registering for classes to ensure that the credits earned at RVCC will transfer.

Any questions regarding course registration should be directed to our Student Enrollment Center (Registrar’s Office) at registrar@raritanval.edu or at 908.526.1200 ext 8861.
