Rosemont is a moderately selective college. As such, it is important that we are confident that you have the academic skills to achieve success in the classroom at Rosemont. Your GPA (grade point average), the quality of the curriculum you studied in high school, standardized test scores (SAT or ACT) or required interview if you are applying with the ROCO Option (not submitting your test scores), admissions essay, and letter of recommendation (optional) will be reviewed during the admissions process.
Rosemont College participates at the NCAA Division III level. The Ravens athletic teams are members of the Colonial States Athletic Conference. Our athletics program is growing rapidly. We currently have 13 athletic teams at Rosemont.
