Post-Baccalaureate Admission

You are considered a post-baccalaureate student if you have earned a bachelor's degree from another institution or UM and want to pursue another undergraduate degree. 

Application for Fall 2023 closes Thursday, Aug. 24, 2023.

As a post-baccalaureate student, your first step is to apply for admission to UM. UM has rolling admissions, we are continuously evaluating applications on a space-available basis until the term begins; however, the sooner you apply the better. If you have attended the University of Montana or Missoula College as an undergraduate/post baccalaureate degree-seeking student please indicate your dates of attendance when completing the application.

Once you have completed the Undergraduate Application for Admissions, paid the $30 application fee, and we have received all of the appropriate paperwork (official transcripts from all institutions of higher education/military), it generally takes two to three weeks to process an application before you hear back from us.

Feel free to contact our office at (800) 462-8636 to inquire about the status of your application if you have not heard back from us three weeks after submitting your application.

As a post-baccalaureate student, you are not required to meet with an academic advisor in order to register for classes. However, you are strongly encouraged to meet with an advisor in your academic department to ensure that you are taking the appropriate courses necessary to graduate.

A list of primary advising contacts by major department is available at 

Post-Baccalaureate Credit Transfer

A course-by-course evaluation will not be done for students who have previously earned a U.S. baccalaureate degree. General Education requirements are considered complete for these students. If you have taken pre-requisite courses, your advisor will be able to consult the official undergraduate transcript you submitted with your application. Please see Transfer Credit Evaluation for more information on our transfer credit policy.
