Are you passionate about your career? Our students believe that enjoying what you do is a key part of success, so they are prepared to do what it takes to reach their professional goals. Recent Rockford Career College graduate Karla Giesecke shared her story of how she selected her new career path.
This summer, if you took a breather and decompressed before jumping into the next phase of your life, good for you. We hope you had an opportunity to catch up with friends and family or maybe save money from your summer job.
How was that summer job? Was it the same job you did during the summers throughout high school? If it was, maybe you realize that it was a great job to get spending money, but now you think about having a lifetime of work ahead of you and you want something better. You want a career that you can look forward to with growth potential.
“You are your own limitation,” says Michael Johnson, Rockford Career College graduate. When he was ready for a new career, Michael did not allow himself to stand in his own way. Persevering through his classes, he graduated from our HVAC/R program on the President's List. We are extremely proud of his accomplishments and excited to see him succeed in his new career.

You've worked 88 hours this week. Now imagine having to attend class and complete assignments on top of that. While some could consider this an impossible feat, this was recent RCC graduate Kadijah Townsel's routine.
No high school diploma? No worries! Just because high school was not for you does not mean you cannot attend college.

Do you find that there is not enough time in the day to complete everything on your list?
