Co-Curricular Programs

Co-Curricular programs allow students to be involved in educational experiences outside the classroom. UMFK currently offers three non-credit-bearing co-curricular programs that accentuate the student’s skills and abilities and can increase a student’s marketability to prospective employers and graduate schools. Each year, UMFK recognizes every student who has completed the requirements for a co-curricular program at the end of the year Bengal Awards with a Certification of Completion.

Co-curricular Options
