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 set up RC email accounts to activate site-wide login

Students must be comfortable working with technology. 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.
