It's time to start your checklist.

Now that you're an accepted transfer student at the University of Montana, it's time to head over to UM's Admitted Student Checklist to get a head start on your life as a Griz.

Knowledge? Yeah, we know a thing or two.

There’s more to the University of Montana than our mountainous academics … but, let’s face it, they’re pretty impressive. From finance to welding to forestry to law — we offer you more than 175 academic programs to summit success.

Tuition and Scholarships

For most students, cost of attendance is among the most important considerations when weighing your options for higher education. Luckily, we are experts at helping sort through the details!


Your Financial Aid Offer

Due to the Department of Education’s delay in FAFSA processing, financial aid offers to students also have been delayed. UM will email you when your offer is available or if the Department of Education needs to recalculate your FAFSA. We urge you to check the status of your FAFSA here. You can also estimate your financial aid offer and cost to attend UM for the 2024-25 academic year using UM’s Net Price Calculator.


Find what you're seeking here

The UM experience is different for each student, but for every Grizzly it is defined by a unique combination of community, well-being, inclusivity, engagement and support.

Faculty who lead the way

At the University of Montana, our faculty aren’t just teachers: They’re committed mentors who re-imagine how to best deliver curriculum and who possess a passion for helping students forge their own way in academic and professional settings.

Next steps

As a transfer student, your orientation needs may differ from a first-time student. That's why we offer options for transfer students. All transfer students must complete Bear Tracks and Online New Student Orientation, while the Big Sky Experience is optional.
