2010 4-Bear Meetings Announced

4-Bear LogoFour Bear is a 4 year graduation plan that strives to facilitate the student’s goal of graduating from the University in four years. This is accomplished through commitments made by both the participating student and The University of Montana-Missoula.

The plan is intended for first-time UM freshmen, including freshmen with Advanced Placement or High School Pilot Program credits.

The four-year graduation plan is designed for students seriously committed to eight consecutive semesters of full-time study at The University of Montana-Missoula. At the core of the Four Bear Program is the Four Bear contract.

In order to fully participate in the Four Bear Program, students will need to attend one of several informational meetings typically scheduled in late September. At these meetings, students will receive information about the UM’s General Education Requirements, how to be a successful Four Bear student, and how to develop an advisor-approved four-year plan of study. The informational meetings for Fall Semester 2010 are scheduled for:

Monday, Sept. 27th 4:10-5:00pm Urey

Tuesday, Sept.  28th 1:10-2:00pm Urey

Wednesday, Sept. 29th 8:10-9:00am Urey
