Western State Colorado University in Gunnison has expanded its partnership with Delta-Montrose Technical College (DMTC) to host six undergraduate courses at DMTC beginning in January 2016. Western, one of America's Colleges of Distinction, is targeting students who are ready to begin pursuing a bachelor's degree close to home.
For the spring semester, courses offered include Introduction to Art, Business of Life, Academic Writing, Physical Geology, U.S. History to 1865 and General Psychology. All of these university courses are approved as meeting either Colorado Guaranteed Transfer or Western General Education requirements.
Courses will be delivered using a hybrid model, combining face-to-face instruction on the DMTC campus, with online instructional elements facilitated through Western.
"Convenient course scheduling for working adults and competitive tuition pricing provides a great opportunity for citizens of Delta County to get started on a university degree," states Western Associate Vice-President for Academic Affairs Dr. Kathleen Kinkema.
Registration for spring courses has begun and classes begin the week of Jan. 11. Both part-time and full-time students who are working toward a degree will be eligible for financial aid.
