Admission Requirements

Rust College invites applications from students from all cultural, racial, religious, and ethnic groups. Students may send applications at any time during the year, and may start at the beginning of any of the 3 semesters (August, January or May). It is, however, a good idea to complete the application process during the fall of your high school senior year.

Students should begin this preparation by taking an academic curriculum in high school. As soon as the application is completed and reviewed by the college, the student will be notified. Rust College believes that the cost of college should not deter anyone from getting an education. A financial package will be sent with the acceptance letter. The financial package shows how federal grants, other scholarships, contributions from family, and other sources of income can combine to cover the costs.

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 a 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.

Any student who is not seeking a degree from Rust College will be classified as a special student. Special students may enroll in one course in a given module. A student may be classified as a special student for one semester only. If a student intends to continue at Rust College after that time period, he/she meet admission requirements.
