The University of Great Falls, a private Catholic University, is fully accredited by the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges. The mission of the University of Great Falls is to provide students with the opportunity to obtain a liberal education for living and making a living. Founded in 1932 by the Bishop of the Diocese, the Sisters of Providence and the Ursuline Nuns. CGF was elevated to university status in 1995. The University is located in Great Falls, Montana, a city of about 55,000 in North Central Montana. The student body consists of approximately 1,090 undergraduate students and 174 graduate students. In addition to its campus offerings, UGF serves 31 sites in Montana, Southern Alberta and Wyoming through its Telecom Distance Learning Program. The UGF undergraduate program consists of two colleges: The College of Arts and Sciences, which contains the School of Arts and Humanities, the School of History, Language and Literature, and the School of Mathematics and Sciences, and the College of Professional Studies, which includes the School of Business, the School of Education and the School of Human Services. Teaching certificates are offered. The most popular programs are criminal justice, human services, elementary education, counseling psychology, and paralegal studies. The College of Graduate Studies offers eight master degree programs. UGF's calendar consists of four-month semesters in the fall and spring, and a 12-week summer term. The University of Great Falls has an open admission policy. Applications will be considered without regard to race, gender, age, religion, marital status, sexual orientation, financial status, physical or mental disabilities, and national origin. Applicants may apply for admission any time; however, applicants are strongly urged to apply at least one month prior to the first day of classes for the term they intend to begin. Required documents must be submitted before a student can be admitted and allowed to register for classes. It is particularly important that the UGF Placement Test be taken prior to registration. Prospective students must complete an admission application, pay a non-refundable, one-time $25 application fee, and provide official high school transcript or official certificate of high school equivalency with scores from the General Education Development Test (GED).
