RUST COLLEGE invites applications for admission from students from all cultural, racial, religious, and ethnic groups, who meet the College's admission requirements. The College considers for admission those students whose educational goals, career objectives, and intellectual abilities match the institution's academic and non-academic programs. Students may send applications at any time during the year.
Although admissions at the beginning of the academic year are encouraged, students who would like to begin their study at Rust College at the beginning of the second semester (January), or summer (April) may be considered for admission.
A student is admitted as a freshman when the admission requirements for freshman students are met. Students transferring from other colleges are classified according to the number of courses accepted as transfer credits. Any student who is not seeking a degree from Rust College will be classified as a special student.
A graduate of Rust College or any other college who plans to do additional work for academic credit, but not for another degree, will be classified as special student. A student of another institution who plans to conduct study at Rust College for a limited period (a semester or a summer) and to transfer the credits earned to the regularly enrolled College will be admitted as a visiting student.

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION AS A FRESHMAN
The minimum requirements for admission to the College as a freshman student with regular status are as follows:
A student may be admitted conditionally if one or more items from 1 through 6 are missing. However, a student may not remain in a conditional status for more than one semester. Non-resident part-time students who are not seeking a degree may be exempted form items 4,5, and 6. All resident students must comply with item 4.
Upon receipt of the completed application with required documents and the application fee, the Admissions Committee will consider the application for admission and will notify the student of its decision.
Students who desire or are required to live in the college dormitories must send a room reservation deposit of $25.00 upon notice of acceptance for admission. Students are also required to pay a yearly dormitory occupant fee of $100.00. This fee is a part of the student room charges. All fees and deposits are to be sent to the Director of Admissions before the confirmation of admission can be finalized.

ORIENTATION AND ASSESSMENT
Rust College conducts an Orientation and Assessment Program which is required of all entering freshmen. The program begins one week prior to registration for upperclassmen. Students are required to take certain diagnostic tests to determine their mastery of basic reading, writing and mathematics.
Based on these scores, a student may be placed in a developmental course. Library orientation is offered through English 131 to all Freshmen. New faculty and transfer students receive orientation from library staff.
