BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — Montana State University plans to offer an online degree completion program starting this fall for students with at least two years of college credits but who haven't obtained a four-year degree.

Officials tell the Bozeman Daily Chronicle that registration for the fall semester is open until July 16.

Peg Wherry is director of online and distance learning for MSU's Extended University. She says there are about 160,000 people in the state who have two years of college credits.

Wherry says many people have jobs and families making it difficult to take classes on the Bozeman campus.

She says the new online degree will let them learn using their home computers.
