Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) is a community college located in Branchburg, New Jersey, United States. Founded in 1965, the college has over 8,500 students enrolled in credit courses and 9,000 individuals in noncredit continuing education programs. RVCC’s initial objective for providing a mobile app was to “enhance the communications between students and the College,” says Chuck Chulvick, VP for Technology, Assessment and Planning. The myRV smartphone app does just that by allowing students to conveniently access RVCC services from their iPhone or Android device.
The close working relationship between CollegeMobile and RVCC staff resulted in a high performance, functional mobile app.
