Opportunities, connections, and an exceptionally personalized education from industry leaders is what the POWER of small is all about.
Rosemont appreciates the life experience you have and are willing to share in the classroom. Students don't just learn from faculty, they learn from their classmates who add their professional experience to the material they cover each week.
The POWER of small is many things, including the ability to give our students a lot of personal attention.
One aspect of the decision process revolves around affordability– "Can I afford to go back to school?" Rest assured that we have thought about that and are doing whatever we can to make a degree reachable for everyone. Our tuition is all inclusive– there are no hidden fees.
We have financial aid and payment plans available, and we have partnerships with many Philadelphia employers in place to offer discounts to their employees. Students with prior college credit, military credit, professional licenses or certificates, or several years of work experience may be able to translate this experience directly into college credit.
Alternative Education and Service Format: When necessary to protect the health and safety of students, faculty and staff, as determined by Rosemont College in its sole discretion, the College reserves the right to alter (a) the academic schedule, location and modality of instructional and learning activities, and academic terms and requirements (including content and grading) of undergraduate and graduate programs and instruction; and (b) the schedule, location, availability and format of services, activities, and experiences offered to students. Students shall not be entitled to refunds or offsets of tuition, fees, or other costs of attendance where the College exercises such discretion, except to the extent permitted by the College’s refund policies.
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any place where people are present, including Rosemont College’s campus. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. Rosemont College has taken multiple actions to safeguard the health and wellbeing of those on campus (these mitigation protocols and actions may be viewed at: www.rosemont.edu/Rosemont2020); students, faculty, staff and visitors voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 while on campus.
Students, faculty, staff, and visitors of Rosemont College agree to follow all guidance from health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html) and the Pennsylvania Department of Health (https://www.health.pa.gov/topics/disease/coronavirus/Pages/Coronavirus.aspx), as well as instructions posted on campus, available on-line at www.rosemont.edu/Rosemont2020, and otherwise provided by Rosemont College, as that guidance and those instructions may change. Campus regulations may be more restrictive than those of either the CDC or the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
