About Rocky Mountain College

Rocky Mountain College is a residential, comprehensive liberal arts college located beneath the sandstone “rim-rocks” in a park-like suburban neighborhood of Billings, Montana, the state’s largest and most economically vibrant city. The College, highly regarded regionally for its overall excellence, expresses its mission through the core themes of academic excellence, transformational learning, and shared responsibility and stewardship. The College’s faculty are dedicated to student-centered learning and lead programs that include an ongoing experiment aboard the International Space Station and the nation’s first unmanned aircraft certification curriculum.

Rocky Mountain College boasts a record of success enabled by a low student-faculty ratio (12:1) and a generous program of financial aid. 99% of students receive award packages that average $24,000 per student; furthermore, 97% of students go on to graduate programs or careers in their desired field. 52 undergraduate majors – including one of the nation’s top aviation programs – as well as graduate degrees in physician assistant studies, accountancy, and educational leadership draw students from 41 states and 16 countries. 

Billings, recently celebrated by Kiplinger as one of the top ten cities in the United States for retirement, is situated along the Yellowstone River where the greater Yellowstone ecosystem mingles with the ecosystems of the northern high plains. Students get out of the classroom regularly for academic field experiences that range from geological surveys to wildlife photography. They ski at nearby Red Lodge Mountain and, during the lingering summer weather, tube down the Yellowstone.

Billings and the surrounding communities are experiencing vigorous cultural and economic growth. Students directly contribute to this growth through the College’s robust community engagement projects with many organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, Family Promise of Yellowstone Valley, the Montana Audubon Education Center, and Crow and Northern Cheyenne K-12 schools. Internships occur in local hospitals, businesses, and non-profits; in fact, approximately 90% of Rocky Mountain College students participate in experiential learning practices, and many programs, such as equestrian studies, physician assistant studies, and aviation, provide daily hands-on experience with organizations at the center of the region’s most exciting growth.

The College’s athletes compete in the Frontier Conference and in the Cascade Collegiate Conference of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. The “Battlin’ Bears” athletic programs include ski racing, soccer, basketball, football, volleyball, cross country, golf, track and field, and cheerleading. In 2015, 41% of Rocky Mountain College students participated in competitive athletic programs. Teams recently captured conference championships in women’s volleyball and men’s soccer, as well as regional and national championships in ski racing.

The College recently broke ground for a new state-of-the-art science building to be completed by the fall of 2017. Current strategic initiatives include the further development of engaged and experiential learning programs, an enhanced first-year experience, expanded undergraduate research opportunities, a pathways program for medical science education, and enhanced academic support services. Rocky Mountain College is well situated to complete the next stage in the evolution of its 138-year pursuit of the very highest expectations of excellence.
