RMBL is a private, independent field station, unaffiliated with any university
Course credits issued by RMBL are sometimes accepted at colleges and universities in the US, but students should check with their school before arriving to be sure that this is true. We suggest you get a signed statement from your registrar’s office documenting that your university will in fact accept RMBL’s credits.
If you encounter any reluctance to accept RMBL credit, you have the option of receiving credit from Western Colorado University (WCU) in Gunnison. There is an additional fee per class, and arrangements must be made before the session begins. You will not be able to apply for WCU credit after the summer session ends.
RMBL Courses as listed on the Western Registration form are as follows:
BIOL 397 Full-time Independent Research (10 credits)
BIOL 397 Independent Research (8 credits)
BIOL 397 Rocky Mountain Ecosystems (2 credits)
BIOL 397 Wildlife Biology (2 credits)
RMBL students taking the short course and part-time independent study may sign up for one or both courses. WCU students will need to register for their classes through extended education and pay the WCU fee.
Instructions and the link to apply for credit through Western Colorado University will be available in April 2023. You’ll need to apply to the WCU Extended Studies office and pay the associated fee before the summer session begins (June 8th, 2023).
