The academics at Rochester College are competitive with other mainstream college and university settings. Professors will typically have a master's degree or above. Several of the professors have had backgrounds in the private sector as well as having other careers part-time. Some professors teach classes on multiple RC campuses or for other schools also.
Given the relatively small student body at RC and the generally smaller class size, there is increased potential for personal attention and individualized help. Select classes are available online as well as in-classroom.The professors are genial and make themselves available to help students. There are also tutoring services, often handled by upperclassmen and graduate students, available at the ACE study lab.
