UM Announces February Deadline for Fall 2015 Elementary Education Bachelor's Degree Program at FVCC

Kalispell – The University of Montana has announced February 16, 2015 at 5 p.m. is the deadline to apply for its Bachelor of Arts in elementary education offered at Flathead Valley Community College.


Through FVCC’s and UM’S partnership, UM will offer the third and fourth years of study via a combination of distance learning and face-to-face classes taught by UM faculty on the FVCC campus in Kalispell. Students will engage in classroom experiences with tenure-track instructors from the nationally accredited Phyllis J. Washington College of Education and Human Sciences. Students in this program will earn the same bachelor’s degree as students physically located on the main UM campus, without the financial burden of travel, relocation or residency costs.


Students who have completed the first two years of study in elementary education at FVCC will be eligible to apply for admission into the fall program. The program also is designed to allow in-district Flathead Valley Community College students to complete their first two years of college at FVCC’s affordable in-district tuition rates and then transfer those credits to UM and complete their bachelor’s degrees in elementary education, all on the FVCC campus.


Applicants need to visit the Phyllis J. Washington College of Education and Human Science’s website,, for application details. Jayna Lutz, academic advisor for UM’s College of Education, will help walk students through the application process, program prerequisites and field questions regarding financial aid options.
