You will not find a more applicable two year applied degree than at Helena College. Many programs start off at 35k per year or more but the cost of tuition and books for most programs is under 10k, most under 8k. Excellent offering for real work success. The student center is great with tutoring and other resourced available at a students fingertips. The school hosts a 'roundtable' event where a cross section of local business owners, including State of Montana reps, sit down and help the college in its direction. This results in immediate placement after graduation because a students education was influenced by the very people who will hire him/her after graduation. This is an exceptional aspect of this school!

The professors either have or currently work in the industry. These folks know their stuff inside and out and often go on funny tangents about related industries or skills because they've lived it. Real world knowledge that reaches outside of a book is incredibly helpful when seeking any applied degree. Class sizes are almost always under 25, classrooms can't hold more than about 30, and the professors are patient and understand that everyone learns differently. They will help, just ask!

I wish they would offer a block learning program at the school, but that is a lot to ask (and I've heard it may come soon).

I have attended another college that would be considered higher scaled than Helena College. That being said, my view may be different than others. Helena College has been a good fit for me for where I am in my life. The college cost significantly less than other colleges in the area, and the location is great for me, at this time. If I had it all to do over again, I would not attend Helena College. I have sought help several times over the past few years from the staff (not professors, professors have been great!), and have received no directions. I am now three semesters behind in my career plan due to bad directions and lack of knowledge from (advising and support staff). I am sad to say this as I think Helena College has a great opportunity in Helena, but that opportunity is not being taken. With that being said, I have had some truly amazing professors! I would be lost in my schooling without the guidance and extra time taken by my Geology teacher, and so many others I have met along the way. Helena College has chosen some great adjunct professors!
