Autumn registration for the Missoula College and the mountain campus students begins mid-spring and the spring registration begins in mid-fall. Registration starting times are restricted during the first two weeks of registration for all students.  Students are encouraged to register during this time to have a better chance of registering for preferred classes. The student can register any time after his/her hour time period has opened, but not before.

REGISTERING FOR CLASSES View our short video below for step-by-step instructions to plan your schedule and register for classes in CyberBear.

Undergraduate students are required to obtain a new advising pin each semester from his/her academic advisor before registration.  This is a randomly assigned six-digit number.  This advising pin is required when students first register for the term on CyberBear. 

***Advising pins are not given out by the Registrar's Office.***

Advising pins are not required for graduate or post baccalaureate students (students working on a second baccalaureate degree).

After the 15th instructional day (or equivalent), our Drop/Add Policy applies.  Please consult the following link for more information:

Drop/Add Policy


The University of Montana requires all students taking 6 or more credits to have and maintain major medical insurance. Before you can register for classes, you will be prompted to BUY or REFUSE the student Blue Cross Blue Shield plan. You may refuse this option only if you have other major medical insurance coverage. You must make a selection (buy or refuse) before you can proceed to the class selection area on CyberBear. Only one selection can be made via CyberBear.  Changes to Student Insurance and/or Curry Health Fee must be made at the Student Insurance Office no later than the fifteenth instructional day of the semester the student is registered for.  Students taking at least six state-supported credits will be eligible for the insurance plan. Students taking 1-5 credits may petition to enroll in the Student Insurance plan.

Distance students are not eligible for The University of Montana Student Health insurance and must refuse the health insurance.  


Students taking seven (7) or more credits are required to pay and are billed the Curry Health Fee.  Students who are enrolled for 1-6 state supported credits may choose to pay the Curry Health Fee if they wish to have full access to the Curry Health Center.  Students who are enrolled for 1-6 state supported credits who do not choose to pay the Curry Health Fee cannot be seen at the Curry Health Center.

Students who drop below 7 state-supported credits prior to the fifteenth class day of the semester will have his/her curry Health Fee dropped and access to services will be denied unless the Curry Health Fee is readded.


After registering for classes, students have several optional services to choose from.  Students can only make one change, per category.  These options are available on CyberBear up until the fifteenth semester day of each term.


Students may purchase parking decals for the current semester or academic calendar year.  Decals purchased online will be mailed to local mailing addresses only.  You can verify your mailing address by going to the personal information section of CyberBear and selecting Update Address and Phone.  If you purchase a parking decal online, print the temporary permit and display it on your dash while waiting for the decal to arrive in the mail.  The temporary permit is valid for two weeks.  If you do not receive your decal within two weeks of finalizing your bill, please call Public Safety at (406) 243-6312.  Any additional changes to parking decals must be made at the Department of Public Safety no later than the fifteenth class day of each term.

Missoula College (MC) students pick up parking decals from the Missoula College cashier and should not select a decal on CyberBear.  Permits are issued at the MC cashier at no additional cost.  MC permits are not valid for parking in the lots on the mountain campus.


Students registering for six credits or less have the option of paying the Athletic fee in order to obtain tickets to Grizzly athletic sporting events.


Students registering for six credits or less have the option of paying to use the Campus Recreation Facilities. 


Students with print disabilities who require textbooks in accessible alternate formats can begin the process of obtaining them right after registration.

For more information regarding this process, link to the Disability Services web site.


To be eligible for graduate credit the student must be admitted to The University of Montana as a graduate student. Courses only offered for undergraduate credit are not available for graduate credit. Graduate students who do not want graduate credit for a 300- or 400- level course must notify the Graduate School by the 30th class day of the semester.


Honors courses and sections are generally open to any qualified student.  They require a high level of performance and are designated as 'Honors' on transcripts.  Interested students should consult the instructor before enrolling in an honors course or section.
