Miles Community College

Miles City, Montana

Miles Community College is the premier higher education institution in Eastern Montana. Since our founding in 1939, we have provided our students and communities both traditional transfer pathways to our university partners and career technical education training for those who want to go directly into the workforce. As the oldest community college in Montana, we believe our slogan says it all. Start Here – Go Anywhere!

The Interstate Passport at Miles Community College

Miles Community College's General Education Program reflects the values, mission, and learning outcomes forwarded by the Interstate Passport project. 

The Passport Learning Outcomes are aligned both at the course level and with the Overarching Outcomes of each Core Area to assemble the following Passport Block, which is largely identical to the MCC General Education Core. 

Differences between the Passport Block and the MCC General Education Core:

  • The MCC General Education Core does not separate the two types of humanities courses. 
  • While several A.A. and A.S. programs do require courses from both life and physical sciences, the MCC General Education Core does not; however, the Interstate Passport does. 
  • MCC General Education Core courses require a C- or higher following BOR Policy 301.1 which can be viewed here: mus.edu/borpol/bor300/301-1.pdf. Interstate Passport courses require a C or higher.

These differences will need to be noted when advising A.A. General Studies and A.S. General Studies students planning to complete the Interstate Passport to aid in transfer out of state.
