3 College Freshman

Academics: Rust does not have my major, I actually had to change to business major

Academics: Many of the professors aren't available doing office hours

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Rust College is a great institution. Although the knowledge may not be all given in class, there are resources in the library for those that strive for further knowledge.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: I love the fact that I gained all my prerequisites, however the fact that I wasn't able to gain any hands on experience was a minus. I now have to return to community college to gain a nursing license, or return to a four year institution as a a freshmen because my credits do not transfer to the higher level nursing programs.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

At Rust College, the semester is divided into two eight-week sessions or modules. The summer session is a four-week session during the month of April. The College has an online four-week summer session during the month of May. At the end of the sessions, students are given a final exam in each of their courses.

Students must take a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester to be considered full time and to receive financial aid. Therefore, students must take at least three courses during each module. The maximum hours a student may take during a module is 10 credit hours. Each student is assigned an academic adviser on a random basis; a postcard is mailed to each student with the name and location of the assigned adviser.
