BOZEMAN – Students who wish to enroll in Montana State University’s online bachelor’s degree completion program must submit all their enrollment materials by July 1.

The program, which culminates in a bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies, is designed for students who have at least 60 college credits or an associate’s degree and would like to earn a four-year degree online.

The program is relevant for students who have started but not completed a degree at MSU or another four-year institution; graduates of community colleges, tribal colleges, colleges of technology and other two-year programs; military personnel and veterans; people who need a bachelor’s degree to advance on the job; and anyone interested in the broad-based education of a liberal studies degree. The program is offered fully online.

Students who earn the degree will complete courses in the arts, humanities, natural sciences, social sciences and a foreign language. Advisors work individually with students to determine how their existing credits apply toward degree requirements.

This fall, students can choose from a range of online courses, including “Islamic Arabic Culture,” “Montana Indian Culture,” “Crime Justice and the Media,” “Earth System Sciences,” “Elementary Spanish” and many others.

Students in the online bachelor’s degree completion program are also eligible to apply for MSU’s Return-to-Learn program, which offers scholarships for students who are being re-admitted to MSU after an absence.
