“Where Tomorrow's Leaders are Students Today”

Finding the right school or university for your son or daughter to attend is not an easy task. At Rust College we believe we are the right fit for students who are serious about their future and who want to make a difference in the years to come. All of our programs are designed with students in mind and with a philosophy that will under-gird successful experiences… 

Rust College is a historically Black, senior liberal arts, church-related college, serving students  from diverse backgrounds. Rust provides a quality college degree that every student can afford. We are sensitive to the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic and want to ensure that you can pursue your educational goals.

A college education is so important and we want  students to have that  experience! Whether fresh out of high school or a few years removed from receiving a formal education, or furthering collegiate learning it is vital.   We at Rust College also believe that it’s our job to not just minimize academic roadblocks but work with students in regards to economic, personal, and other obstacles as well.
