Rochester College

Rochester College's main campus is located in Rochester Hills (approx. 20-minute drive from the University Center). Rochester College is an accredited, private, coeducational, liberal arts college that provides academic excellence in a Christian setting. The College grants bachelor's and associate's degrees in a diverse array of academic areas and attracts students who seek to develop themselves as scholars and leaders. The College is committed to a personalized learning experience, where instructors know you by name and take personal interest in your success.

Rochester offers five unique accelerated bachelor's degree programs for Macomb students looking to continue their education. These programs are offered on ground at Macomb's University Center or online. Course schedules are designed to meet the needs of working students and adult learners. Classes meet either one night per week, from 6-10pm in the University Center, or fully online. Most Macomb students who transfer to Rochester College and have earned an associate degree will be able to complete an accelerated program in an average of 16 months and can transfer up to 90 credit hours, though these numbers vary from student to student. For a more accurate timeline and to learn how many credits will transfer, Rochester College recommends meeting with an adviser early in the transfer process.

Rochester College is very pleased that it has been able to maintain and strengthen its relationship with Macomb Community College and conveniently offer classes in its University Center for over a decade and counting.
