Missoula College University of Montana is the new name of the college formerly known as the University of Montana College of Technology. The renaming is a part of a Montana Board of Regents initiative for Montana's two-year colleges.
Our mission, as the two-year college of the University of Montana, is to provide open access to higher education that expands opportunities for Montana residents. We are a gateway to comprehensive education, delivering high quality, student-centered, professional, technical, transfer, and workforce programs and courses.
The Missoula College offers programs and services on four campuses: the East Campus at 909 South Avenue West, the West Campus at 3639 South Avenue West, Mountain Campus at 32 Campus Drive, and the Bitterroot College in Hamilton. The student support offices including Enrollment Services, Disability Services for Students, Financial Aid, Registrar, Career Services, Educational Opportunity (EOC), Outreach Programming Office, Academic Advising, and administrative offices are located at the East Campus. All business technology programs, applied computing and electronics programs, culinary arts programs, health professions programs, as well as a branch of the Mansfield Library, The Bookstore at the Missoula College, and a dining room are located on the East Campus. All industrial technology programs are located on the West Campus.
Students may attend courses at four campus sites and online. Courses are scheduled at a variety of times between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., Monday through Saturday. The Missoula College Dean's Office, department chairs and/or program directors may be contacted for specific program and scheduling information.

Associate of Applied Science and Certificate of Applied Science Programs
The Associate of Applied Science degree and Certificate of Applied Science programs are designed to prepare an individual for employment in a specific career or career pathway. In some instances, particularly in Health Professions, the degree or certificate is a prerequisite for taking a licensing examination. The Associate of Applied Science degree is not typically considered a transfer degree, although opportunities do exist at the University of Montana and some other baccalaureate degree-granting institutions for continuing in programs such as the University's Bachelor of Applied Science degree program.
The College's Surgical Technology and Respiratory Care programs are reviewed by their respective Joint Review Committees and accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs. The Food Service Management program is accredited by the American Culinary Federation Educational Institute Accrediting Commission, the Paralegal Studies program is approved by the American Bar Association, and the Nursing programs are approved by the Montana Board of Nursing and the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.
Associate of Arts Degree Program
The Associate of Arts Degree is a general education transfer degree and does not officially include a major or minor course of study but does indicate areas of emphasis and areas of concentration. To receive an Associate of Arts (AA) degree, students must successfully complete all the general education requirements as described by Montana Board of Regents policy 301.10 Appendix 1. The minimum grade point average for the 60 credits required for the AA is 2.0.
