VUB has hosted pre-college classes at Helena College (formerly UM-Helena College of Technology) since 2000 and currently offers college prep instruction in 6-week sessions each fall and spring. These classes provide a general academic refresher and their location on a college campus with college faculty makes them as authentic a college experience as possible. For veterans preparing to enter or re-enter college, this program helps ease that transition. VUB classes at this site are eligible for GI Bill benefits.

Academic Refresher Classes available:
  • Computer Instruction: Word, PowerPoint, Excel
  • Math/Algebra Refresher
  • Writing Refresher
Also available to veterans in the Helena area:
