Requirements for taking online classes at Rochester College include

  • Access to a computer with at least a 1GHz processor with audio capabilities
  • Microsoft Word processing software, version 2003 or higher, or compatible
  • Internet connection (high-speed recommended)
  • Rochester College computer network account (sent to students via email, upon enrollment)

Students must be comfortable working with technology and a computer. This means working with files (download, save, edit, attach), using an Internet browser, and understanding basic computer security features such as pop-up blockers.  

Students who are unfamiliar with technology should enroll in a software applications course before attempting online courses.

Our current online platform is MOODLE, an open source Course Management System (CMS), also known as a Learning Management System (LMS).

Online registration for returning students is still processed through your student portal: my.rc.edu/student/login.
