What Students Are Saying

3.75 Average Rating
Rocky Mountain College is a friendly and safe environment for all students. Rocky's small student population creates a great one on one relationship with your professors. I feel that Rocky's extremely friendly staff and students are a great place for any student to learn.
Philip from Dutton, MT
Rocky Mountain college is the perfect size; larger than high school but small enough to recognize each student as a person. The staff at Rocky Mountain college are knowledgeable and caring. All the buildings on campus are with in easy walking distance of convenient parking.
