Please note that the CBTE Minor includes an hour-long meeting each week of the three terms. For our first cohort, we will hold our weekly virtual meeting on Thursdays. If a Thursday meeting does not work for you, we plan to hold our virtual meeting on a different day for the Spring 2025 Cohort.

All applications must be completed online using the MLC Application form. On the enrollment page of the application, be sure to select “CBE” for your program to make sure your application is shared with me.

You will also need to provide copies of official transcripts from all institutions of higher education that you have attended, if you still need to send those in, as well as a personal statement and letter of reference. Tips for completing the personal statement and letter of reference are available on our webpage. You can save your progress and return to complete your application.

If you have questions about the CBTE Minor or the application process, please contact Dr. Nichole LaGrow, Director of the Nontraditional Education Program.
