Admission Procedures

To apply for the traditional undergraduate program at Rochester College, each of the following steps must be completed. For those seeking financial aid, completing these steps as early as possible is important.

  1. Submit a completed application for undergraduate admission to the Admissions Office. Application forms may be downloaded or submitted online at Applications are also available upon request from the Admissions Office. A fee may be assessed for processing a paper application.
  2. Request delivery of your official transcripts to Rochester College.
    1. For students who are entering college for the first time or have fewer than 15 credit hours of college course work completed, official high school and college (if applicable) transcripts must be submitted. A Transcript Request Form is available for downloading at Transcripts are required before an admission decision is made. Students must make arrangements to have a final high school transcript sent to Rochester College after graduation. GED graduates must submit an official copy of their GED scores to the Admissions Office.
    2. Students seeking to attend Rochester College who have 16 or more hours of college course work completed must submit official transcripts from all colleges or universities they have attended.
  3. If you are entering college for the first time or you are transferring fewer than 15 credit hours from an accredited college or university, you are required to submit ACT or SAT scores to Rochester College (this is not applicable for accelerated programs). ACT or SAT scores noted on a high school transcript are acceptable. You may request that your scores be submitted to Rochester College at these websites: (ACT) and (SAT). Rochester College’s ACT code is 2072, and our SAT code is 1516.
  4. Campus residence is required of all students (unless married) who are under the age of 21 and of freshmen and sophomore status unless living with a parent or relative over the age of 25. (Campus residency requirements are not applicable for students in accelerated programs.) Students planning to live on campus must submit a room reservation form, which can be downloaded from our website at or found in our application packet. Housing assignments are made on a first-come, first-served basis. The room security and key deposits are due at time of registration. Submission of the room reservation form does not commit the student to living on campus; it only indicates the applicant’s interest in doing so.
