My Academics: a student's introduction to academics at UM
My Academics is the freshman's summer guide to academics at The University of Montana. We've brought together the information new students need to explore majors, learn about summer registration, and make decisions regarding their future at The University of Montana.
Once a freshman registers for a summer orientation or GEAR Online (our online general education advising and registration program), she or he receives an invitation to log on to the My Academics web portal. The portal contains information relevant to the particular student: a list of the core courses for their major, ACT/SAT and writing placement scores, information about how to change a major, and links to academic resources for further information.
Most importantly, My Academics displays each student's personalized My To-Do List that sets forth all of the academic tasks that entering freshmen must complete before June 1st so that they may be registered in the high-demand courses for their majors. One of those tasks - completing the Academic Interest Questionnaire (A-IQ) - allows the student to indicate specific interest within the chosen major, as well as list high school courses and courses taken for college and AP credits.
