Welcome to the Outward Bound Program.
Outward Bound and Western State Colorado University have developed a partnership to provide college credit for Outward Bound courses.
Once a student enrolls in an Outward Bound course, credit registration is available through Western Extended Studies. Upon successful completion of the course and assignments due, Recreation and Outdoor Education (ROE) 397 credit is awarded. The amount of credit earned is based upon the length of the course.
