Haley completed her first two years of University Studies and then transferred to University of Lethbridge to complete her Bachelor of Science. “I had no problem getting full transfer credit at the University of Lethbridge for the courses I studied at College of the Rockies. I also found that I had a much better experience of first and second year science courses than other students who completed them at university, especially labs, because of the smaller class sizes and individual attention from instructors.� - Haley, University Studies Alumni
