COLLEGEnow: Montana's Two-Year College Initiative

Tuesday, June 1, 2010, 4:02 pm

Through a Lumina Productivity Grant, Montana's colleges and universities are teaming up with business and community leaders, K-12 educators, and elected officials on a policy initiative to make two-year colleges more affordable and accessible statewide.  Montanans have spoken--they are looking for education and training that will help them get and create high-wage jobs that will strengthen their communities and their families.  Using a combination of new policies, new technologies, and old-fashioned cooperation, these groups are working to bring certificates and degrees to every corner of Montana--within available funding.

Take a look at the document "College!Now Online" for details about high school junior and senior access to Early College programs.
