Students looking to complete a university degree can take up to two-years of university-level courses in Arts and Sciences at College of the Rockies and then transfer to a university for the remainder of their program of study.



University Studies Department Head Ildi Walkley says, “With a wide variety of arts and science courses, both on-campus and online, students can tailor their studies to take them wherever they want to go.  College of the Rockies offers a variety of certificates and diplomas that can lead into Associate or Bachelor's Degrees or onto further learning.”



“This is an excellent opportunity for interested individuals to learn more about our new engineering program agreement with University of Victoria which allows College of the Rockies engineering certificate graduates to be on equal footing with UVIC students for competitive entry into year two of the UVIC program,” Walkley continues.



While attendees enjoy refreshments, representatives from the College will be on hand to discuss transfer opportunities, face-to-face and online options, financial aid, prerequisites and admission requirements. The $30 application fee will be waived for anyone who attends the information session and applies to take University Studies courses at the College in September 2013.
