VUB offers short term classes – on college campuses across Montana – to provide an authentic "college experience" to help ease the transition for veterans into an academic environment. The classes provide a rapid academic review and assist in the development of skills necessary for success in any learning environment.
We have added Live Online Classes to increase course offerings to program participants at all sites. Online classes are indicated below.
Get help in navigating college admissions, financial aid, registration and more. Dust off those practical skills – note taking, test taking, time management – and get ready for class. Find out more about the statewide support provided by veterans' service providers in your community.
Brush up your computer skills and refine your understanding of the useful tools in Word and Excel. Improve the skills needed to produce more polished documents for college or work.
Gain the tools you need for better money management and wiser financial decisions. Create a personal budget and develop long and short term goals for a more secure financial future.
Learn the basic grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation you need to communication simply but effectively in Spanish. If Spanish is in your collegiate future, use this class to get a head start on the material presented in an introductory college class.
If the thought of a math class has you breaking out in a cold sweat, this is your opportunity to face your math fears. Review basic math skills to fill in any learning gaps, remember things you used to know and strengthen your analytical skills. Move into algebra with confidence. VUB instructors are very good at addressing areas of math weakness.
Get a brief overview of biology, physics and chemistry and become familiar with the basic concepts and principles of each branch. Build a foundation of vocabulary, appropriate study skills and learning strategies to prepare for a college level science class.
Begin with a concise grammar review to eliminate common punctuation errors and prepare for writing more formally and with a purpose. Learn the writing process from pre-writing to evaluating content, organization, topic development, transition, clarity, and word and sentence choice to produce thoughtful and polished essays.
