Casper College, founded in 1945, is a public community college located in Caspar, Wyoming. Today, there are over 4,000 students enrolled from most states and over 70 countries across the world. Students can earn certificates in many areas of study, and the school awards Associate of Arts, Science, Business, Fine Arts, and Applied Science, which take two years to complete. The college has also started to form partnerships with four-year Universities to create distance-learning programs where students with an associate’s degree can continue to study and receive a four-year degree, a master’s, or a doctorate with these schools.
The college is spread over 200 acres in the heart of Wyoming where students can enjoy the scenery and take advantage of city life at the same time. The famous Yellowstone National Park is only a road trip away, along with Denver, CO being a close by option for students who may want to ski down the slopes of the Rockies. The entire campus perched in the foothills of Casper Mountain, overlooking the city.
