Schedule a campus tour online, or call the University of Montana Admissions Office at 406-243-6266. UM offers both in-person and virtual tours.

When you schedule your campus visit, be sure to list which of our Bachelor of Science degrees you are interested in learning about and the UM Admissions Office will set up your departmental visit for you! You will also speak with an admissions counselor, learn about financial aid and take a guided tour of our beautiful campus. If you would like to sit in on one of our classes, be sure to include that information, and the Admissions Office can set that up for you as well.

While here, please consider visiting Lubrecht Experimental Forest, the College’s outdoor classroom. You can even reserve a room in the lodge or one of the cabins or boxcars to stay in, as the forest is only 30 miles from campus.

If you have any other questions about visiting the W.A. Franke College of Forestry and Conservation, please contact us at 406-243-5521 or at
