College Credit

Where nature is the best teacher.

Every Wild Rockies Field Institute course has been approved for college credit through the University of Montana. Students from a wide variety of majors, minors, and concentrations can earn between 3 and 15 academic credits towards their degree. Students attending quarter system schools are able to transfer between 4.5 and 18.5 credits. To date, we have enrolled students from hundreds of colleges and universities across the U.S. and Canada. Upon completion of a WRFI course, students receive an official transcript with traditional letter grades from the University of Montana to transfer the credits back to their home institution. All WRFI courses are considered upper-division, 300-level academic credits at the University of Montana. In addition, our course dates accommodate students at semester system, as well as quarter system, schools.
