  • College credit may be awarded based on work and life experiences. These credits may count toward degree requirements and are based on written portfolios.
  • The program provides considerable flexibility in how, when, and where course requirements are met. With the assistance of an advisor, applicants develop a course of study that best fits their needs.
  • Students may earn credit through regular college courses (in-state or out-of-state), cooperative education, distance learning, credit by exam, and/or writing portfolios.
  • There is no time limit for completing the degree requirements.

I love my new job! I get to work with problem horses every time I'm there, and I wouldn't have been able to handle any of them without the training, information, and help that i got at MM. Thanks again to Ron, Faith, Nancy, and everyone else for the tools you gave me to love what I do, and to do it with the strength and confidence to do it right.
