Did an unforeseen obstacle cause you to put a hold on your education? Don't let it prevent you from pursuing your dream! 

CHILD CARE ISSUE?

Did you know the YWCA offers child care if you are working at least 20 hours per week and are enrolled in school? The cost is based on income. Contact the YWCA referral specialist Kelly McNeal at KellyM@ywcanwil.org or 815-484-9442 ext. 205. Find out more at https://www.ywcanwil.org/find-childcare/

EMPLOYER ISSUE?

If you can't fit classes around your work schedule, you have two options:

1. Rockford Career College’s student services will help you with the necessary documentation to request employer flexibility. 

2. Check out Rockford Career College’s career services job board. Our career services staff can assist you in finding a job that allows you to attend school and work simultaneously. 

GRADE ISSUE?

That's where our tutors and study groups can help! Come in and talk to student services or your program chair to make a plan and get back on track.
