Elementary Education Baccalaureate Track #3

This plan is a 2+2 Early Launch Program for students to earn their AA degree through Missoula College, followed by a BA in Elementary Education through the UM mountain campus, within four years. Students following this plan transition to the mountain campus their fourth semester (Spring #2), but still earn their AA that same semester.

This plan assumes that the student places into M 095 and WRIT 101. Should the student place below these levels, additional coursework may be required; this, in turn, may extend the length of the overall plan.

  • TOTAL CREDITS EARNED FOR AA DEGREE: 60
  • TOTAL CREDITS EARNED FOR BACCALAUREATE DEGREE: 129
