The Associate of Applied Science and Certificate of Applied Science programs in the Missoula College are designed to lead an individual directly to employment in a specific career path. In some instances, particularly in allied health, the degree is a prerequisite for taking a licensing examination. Students may pursue a baccalaureate degree at the University of Montana after completing an AAS degree through a Bachelor of Applied Science degree plan. The Associate of Arts degree is a University of Montana transfer degree which offers students the opportunity to complete a 60 credit transfer degree toward completing a baccalaureate degree at the University of Montana or other accredited institutions of higher education.
To be eligible for admission, students must have graduated from an accredited high school or passed the GED. Students admitted to the Missoula College who wish to enroll in courses at the mountain campus must meet the admission requirements of the main campus.
