About Rose State College
Rose State College offered its first classes on September 21, 1970. Initially called Mid-Del Junior College, it was renamed Oscar Rose Junior College in memory of the Midwest City-Del City Superintendent of Schools. On April 1983 the college's name was officially changed to Rose State College. The college is located in Midwest City, OK, just minutes away from downtown Oklahoma City, and right off Interstate 40 and Hudiburg Drive. The campus includes twenty-five buildings on approximately 120 acres. Academically, the college is organized around five divisions: Business and Information Technology, Engineering and Science, Health Sciences, Humanities, and Social Sciences. Almost 60 degree and skilled-occupational programs are available, many of which prepare students for completion of a bachelor's degree. Classes are offered during the day, evening, and online in two, four, eight, or 16-week terms, providing significant scheduling flexibility. Tuition and fees are among the lowest in the state, and over $30 million in financial aid and scholarships is provided every year. Rose State also offers its Workforce Development division, comprised of the Community Learning Center and the Professional Training Center. The Community Learning Center is known for its wide range of lifelong learning programs, including its popular Kids College. The Professional Training Center offers business training, small business advising, and is home to the Oklahoma Environmental Training Center where people from throughout Oklahoma are trained in wastewater management. It also houses the career advisement center, which is available to both students and the surrounding community.
