School Notes:

The University of Montana – Helena College of Technology (UM-Helena), formerly the Helena College of Technology and the Helena Vocational-Technical Center, was founded in 1939 when the Office of Public Instruction designated five training centers for Montana. The Helena Center is the only one to accept the challenge. The University of Montana - Helena College of Technology (UM-Helena) is a vibrant and growing center for higher learning, offering technical proficiency Certificates, Associate of Applied Science, Associate of Arts, and Associate of Science degrees, as well as study toward upper-level and graduate-level programs in cooperation with other Montana University System institutions. UM-Helena has the tools to help students succeed. We are a comprehensive institution of higher education; we are meeting this charge by expanding our educational offerings and services in the technical, professional, pre-professional, general education and transfer areas. We offer on-site, online, and other distance education classes to make our services accessible. Students enroll from Avon, Basin, Boulder, Clancy, Elliston, Helena, Montana City, Townsend, White Sulphur Springs, and throughout the great State of Montana to take developmental, technical, vocational, and college-transfer courses.
