Complete your degree on your schedule
Cohort-based programs at Rochester College are designed to help ease you back into school while learning alongside like-minded classmates. A cohort of classmates work through an academic tract as a unit. You build lifelong relationships and connections because the people you meet on day one are the same people you walk with on stage to receive your diploma.Another distinct advantage of cohort learning is that your educational path is mapped out from start to finish. This model allows you to plan for financial aid, class dates and times, and set an expected completion date.
Thus, cohort learning will help you stay organized, plan ahead and work with other students who have similar goals and plans for their lives. You can easily view the cohort scheduling for each major by visiting the degree plan page under the programs tab.
