Governor Steve Bullock (D-MT) spoke at the new Missoula College during the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnership Conference and highlighted the importance of dual-enrollment.

Dual enrollment programs allow students to be enrolled in two separate, academically related institutions. It generally refers to high school students taking college or university courses.

Gov. Bullock says having these opportunities for Montana students provide many benefits including savings on future tuition and a head start in preparing for life after high school.

"We've actually, in Montana, saved Montana families over $3 million in tuition. Just by bringing in more college classes into high school. Giving these kids opportunities to get excited and prosper even before they leave high school," Bullock said.

The conference is the first event held in the new Missoula College which is set to open after UM graduation this spring, with regular classes at the new location set to begin this summer.
