Rocky Mountain College is a private, comprehensive college located in Billings, Montana. Founded in 1878, the college traces its beginnings to the Montana Collegiate Institute, later renamed College of Montana, which was established in 1878 but which eventually closed in 1916. By 1923, its assets were merged with the Intermountain Union College which relocated to Billings in 1935 and merged with Billings Polytechnic Institute to become what is now Rocky Mountain College.
Today, Rocky Mountain College or RMC stands on 60 acres of land and offers its students various undergraduate, graduate and pre-professional degree programs. For the undergraduate level, it offers over 48 majors and 31 minors in a wide-range of subjects and areas. For its graduate students, it offers three post-graduate programs: Master of Physician Assistant Studies, Master of Accountancy, and Master of Educational Leadership. The college also offers pre-professional training in such fields as Medicine, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy and others.
Estimated cost of attendance for academic year 2010-2011 at the college for fulltime undergraduate students is US$14,489 broken down into full-year tuition of US$10,325; required fees at US$225; estimated cost of books and supplies at US$600; room rental of US$1,584; and meal plan cost of US$1,755.
Financial aid in the form of loans, grants, scholarships, and work-study arrangements for qualified students is extended to help them pay for their cost of attendance.
On-campus housing is available and is, in fact, required of all freshmen and sophomore students under the age of 21. This is in line with the belief of the college that allowing students to live in community with one another enables them to learn more about interacting with people with backgrounds that may be different from theirs.
