Rust College offers much more than sitting in classrooms. The first year is designed to ensure that you are successful. The First Year Experience includes programs to advise, support and assist you in your freshman year and prepare you for your next years of college education. Once you declare your major at the end of the first year, your classes begin to focus on that specialty.

Some students will choose the route of studying at Rust College as a high school student or participating in the honors program. There are weekend and evening programs for non-traditional students or the Adult Pathways Program.
