If you plan on taking advantage of the various on- or off-campus UM housing options, then your next step will be to apply for housing. You can apply for and find out more information about housing through the Residence Life Office. They can be reached at (406) 243-2611 or check out their website. All housing is assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. The sooner you apply the more likely you are to have your request met! You can apply for housing online at the UM Housing website.
Apply for Financial Aid
If you want to be considered for federal aid, including Pell grants, student loans, and work study, then make sure to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) before the priority deadline of November 15. Applying after this deadline will not exclude you from being considered for aid, but the sooner you apply the better. You can find out more information about the FAFSA on the Financial Aid Office website. UM Financial Aid Code: 00-2536.
Submit your Health Form
New or former students who are applying for readmission after an absence of 24 months or more must submit a Medical Requirement Form to the Curry Health Center before registration can be permitted. You can access a copy online at the Curry Health Center.
Meet with an Academic Advisor
Meeting with an academic advisor is the best way to determine what classes and other requirements you need to complete to earn your degree. All undergraduate students are required to meet with an academic advisor in order to register for classes. You are responsible for arranging a meeting with an advisor. Please view your department's website or the Campus Directory for the contact information of your department.
Registering for Classes
Once you have met with your academic advisor, you can register for classes online through Cyberbear.
