for Southwest Montana High School Students


Our Dual Enrollment courses offer Southwest Montana resident high school students an opportunity to earn high school and college credit at the same time. We invite anyone seeking an authentic college experience in a supportive setting to participate in our program, and we offer options for both Career and Technical Education (CTE) and general education. Dual Enrollment courses typically take placeat local high schools. Students may also take Early College courses on our campus or online, however availiability is limited and only college credit is earned. 

Dual Enrollment and Early College Benefits:

  • It doesn't get any cheaper than this:

Through the One-Two-FREE initiative, the Montana University System covers students' tuition for two dual enrollment or early college (on campus) courses. After that, students still pay only half-price tuition - just under $55 per credit - with no university fees.

  • Hit the ground running:

Dual enrollment and early college credits transfer throughout the Montana University System and to accredited institutions nationwide, so students save time and money toward completing a degree.

  • Give college a try:

Dual enrollment students challenge themselves by taking college-level classes, but they receive plenty of help and encouragement from their teachers and peers. This positive environment empowers all participants to learn, grow, and discover their passion.
