Gillette College To Offer Bachelors Of Applied Science

If all goes according to plan, Gillette College could begin offering four-year degree programs as early as fall 2020.
Traditionally in Wyoming, the only higher-education institution permitted by state statute to offer four-year degrees has been the University of Wyoming.
But Senate File 111, passed by the Legislature Feb. 27 and signed into law by Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon March 15, unravels the monopoly on bachelor’s degrees within the Cowboy State.
SF111 opens the market up to community colleges statewide, allowing for former two-year institutions to begin offering accredited four-year bachelor of applied science (BAS) degrees.
