MUS College Prep

In order to improve students' preparation for college-level work, the Montana Board of Regents of Higher Education requires the Minimum Core College Preparatory Program for students who wish to enter into a 4-year campus of the Montana University System.  The Rigorous Core was created as an alternative to the mathematics proficiency expectations of the Montana University System. That Rigorous Core is also the criteria for the MUS Honors Scholarship. Click here to find out more about Minimum Core requirements.
