Mountwest Community & Technical College offers students the opportunity to follow their choice of career or academic pathway. The career pathway provides students the opportunity to purse either an associate’s degree (traditionally completed in two years) or a certificate (usually earned in one year) to help find a rewarding career. The academic pathway provides students with the means to begin their educational journey with the end goal of completing a higher degree. Mountwest currently has agreements with several local and regional institutions, ensuring course transferability and allowing students the opportunity to reach their educational goals. By offering a wide variety of associate and certificate programs, Mountwest provides students with adequate skills and knowledge to become competitive members of today's workforce, as well as successful and desirable students.
Mountwest fosters educational growth within the community through an open enrollment policy. The enrollment process begins with the admission application and is followed by the CAP assessment. Once admitted, an educational counselor will assist the student with developing a program of study and planning educational goals.
