Thank you for your interest in The University of Montana Graduate School. We welcome applicants holding a U.S. baccalaureate or an equivalent international degree from an accredited institution.
1.) Complete the online application at https://www.applyweb.com/apply/uomont/menu.html which includes submitting a $60 non-refundable application fee electronically using a credit card (Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Discover) or debit check (Note: when using a debit check, there is usually a delay of up to ten working days until the check clears and the application can be processed).
2.) We encourage applicants to read all directions thoroughly when filling out the online application. For questions about the online application process, please call the Graduate School at 406-243-2572.
3.) Submit "additional application materials" in one envelope directly to the program you are applying to by the program deadline. The information listing these materials is available when you choose the major you are applying for, using the online application. In case you missed it, please visit the Final Reminder section of this website.
4.) Letter of recommendation forms are completed within the online application. Hard copies do not need to be sent in addition to the electronic copies.
5.) Official transcripts should also be included in the "additional application materials" packet you will send directly to the program you are applying to. We have provided a form for you to print in order to request official transcripts from other colleges and universities. It is available at the beginning of the online application. These should not be sent to the Graduate School office. **Official transcripts must show bachelor's degree awarded. If you will not complete your bachelor's degree before the application deadline, you may submit an in-progress transcript; if you are admitted, you will be required to submit a final transcript before the completion of your first term at UM. NEW FINANCIAL AID GUIDELINES FOR 2013-14 MANDATE THAT A FINAL TRANSCRIPT SHOWING THE COMPLETED BACHELOR'S DEGREE MUST BE ON FILE BEFORE REGISTRATION WILL BE PERMITTED FOR THE INITIAL TERM.**
6.) Paper Applications - If you are unable to or choose not to apply online, you may request a paper application from the Graduate School at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (406) 243-2572.
