Academic Services

Academic Services is overseen by Dr. Brian Stogner, Provost. Additionally, Rebekah Pinchback, the Registrar, oversees class scheduling and transcript evaluations and works together with the School Deans to ensure all aspects of academia are executed according to the mission of Rochester College. Academic Services is located in the Associates Campus Center building and may be contacted at 248.218.2091.


Each student is assigned an academic adviser who helps clarify life/career goals and develop educational plans for completion of these goals. Upon declaring a major, students will be assigned a faculty adviser in that discipline who will serve as their major academic adviser. Students are encouraged to make contact with their major adviser early in their academic career. Students should consult these faculty advisers in planning their semester schedules and in outlining their degree plan.

Snow Days and Class Cancellations

The College makes every reasonable attempt to keep the campus open for classes. However, should inclement weather prohibit safe campus operation, arrangements have been made to announce campus closures. The campus community should listen carefully to campus closure announcements to determine if a closure is for daytime classes or evening classes. DO NOT ASSUME that evening classes are cancelled if you hear a campus-closing announcement early in the morning. Evening classes will be cancelled by 3:00pm on the day of the weather event (situation permitting) if a cancellation is necessary and known in advance.

A weather emergency text message is sent to those who have signed up for this service. (To sign up, please go to . RC login information is required.) Campus closure announcements are made through various local media outlets, as well as posted on the Student Portal, RC Facebook page, and RC mobile app.
