Welcome to the Winterline Global Education program.

Winterline Global Education and Western State Colorado University have developed a partnership to provide college credit for the Winterline Gap Year program. Currently, ROE 297 (3 credits) and ENVS 297 (3 credits)  and BUAD 297 (3 credits) are offered as part of this Gap Year program, with more courses to be added this year. 

Once a student enrolls in a Winterline program, credit registration is available through Western Extended Studies. Upon successful completion of the course and assignments due, college credit is awarded.
