General Information About Rocky Mountain College
Rocky Mountain College was once known as the "College of the Open Door" because it served as a poly technical institute that specialized in vocational training. The open door was for students from all walks of life who came to learn how to run printing presses, fix automobiles, and manage dairy farms. Now the open door has a different meaning. When the door opens from RMC to their next adventure, they are superbly prepared. They cross the threshold with high academic qualifications and leadership skills. They are so well prepared because one of the college's greatest assets, its living asset is the quality faculty and staff who assist them through their college journey. RMC has an above average percentage of faculty with doctorates and terminal degrees. And these are faculty who teach. We do not have teaching assistants handling that essential task. Our staff, from the admissions counselors to the mentors and tutors with the Services for Academic Success are committed professionals.
