Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many colleges have suspended or relaxed some admitted student requirements and extended decision and enrollment deposit deadlines. We recommend that you contact the colleges to which you have been accepted directly for the most updated and accurate information.

The University of Montana, founded in 1893, is a comprehensive public institution. Beyond academic programs, students select the University of Montana for its location and outdoor recreation opportunities. Campus recreation and outdoor programs enable students to take advantage of unique opportunities in the wilderness. Strong academic programs, particularly forestry and wildlife biology, are supported by a 29,000-acre experimental forest as well as two working ranches. The school has an exceptional environmental studies program. Programs are offered through the College of Arts and Sciences and the Schools of Business Administration, Education, Fine Arts, Forestry, Journalism, and Pharmacy and Allied Health Sciences. Its 220-acre campus is located in Missoula, west of Great Falls.
