Classes for the spring 2017 semester begin on Tuesday, January 17, at Rockford University and there is still time to enroll. Students in all levels of education are served including first-year students, transfer students, international students, veterans, and adult students. Rockford University is a four-year, co-educational institution founded in 1847 offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in traditional liberal arts and professional fields. The University offers approximately 80 majors, minors and concentrations and currently serves approximately 1,300 students.

Spring semester offers opportunities for both first-year students to begin their academic career, and transfer students to advance in Rockford University’s traditional undergraduate programs. Financial aid and scholarships are still available for full-time traditional undergraduate students.

The next cohort start date for the adult accelerated degree completion program to earn a Bachelor of Science in Management Studies (BSMS) degree begins February 7, 2017. The BSMS program is designed to provide a quality educational experience for adult learners in an accelerated format. The program also provides a tuition-covered option for qualified adults who have been out of work for at least 18 months and will cover any remaining tuition after all eligible state and federal student aid is applied. Qualified applicants must be Illinois residents 25 years of age and older who have been unemployed for at least 18 months, have some transferable college credit, but have not already earned a bachelor’s degree.

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Graduate Education programs in Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) and Master of Education (MEd) programs allow students to take up to four courses before formally enrolling in the program and offer flexible options for working adults. The MAT program offers several licensure tracks and endorsements in areas like special education, reading specialist, instructional strategies and bilingual education. New Master of Education degrees are offered in Urban Education and Pedagogical Practice. There is also a variety of options available to degreed professionals who may wish to enter the teaching profession. The Master of Business Administration (MBA) program covers a variety of functional areas including accounting, economics, finance, management and marketing. Students can choose a concentration in disciplines such as MBA/CPA, public and not-for-profit management, entrepreneurship or management.
