School Overview

Rochester College is private, coeducational liberal arts college in Rochester, Michigan, situated in the northern suburb of the Detroit metro area. The college was established in 1959 as the North Central Chirstian College by the Churches of Christ. I was later renamed Michigan Christian College. In order to distance itself from its image as a Christian school and to more clearly establish itself as a liberal arts institution, in 1997, the board of trustees renamed the school Rochester College.

Rochester College offers both undergraduate and graduate degree programs, although it’s primarily an undergraduate education institution. The few graduate programs offered at the schools, such as the Master of Religions Education, are religious in nature. Rochester also offers several degree completion programs for adults.

Rochester college has a total student body of just over 1000.
