Resources for Students

On average, students with a high school diploma earn less over a lifetime than college graduates. Those without a high school diploma make even less over their lifetime. 

The good news is that with financial aid, grants, and scholarships, college can be affordable for everyone, with many students earning a degree with little to no debt. An associate degree significantly increases potential wage earnings and it only continues to increase with advanced degrees. Montana is seeing an increase need for degrees in health occupations (nursing, dental assistants, etc.) and manufacturing and technology occupations (welding, mechanics, etc.).


When you are pursuing a college education you need to search out and utilize as many resources that you can. We consider ourselves one of those resources, but we also encourage you to keep looking and searching for more and more resources.
