Summer Start


"I had a great overall experience and feel like I have an edge that would not exist had I not taken the summer opportunity." - Recent Summer Start student

Summer Start is an innovative way to get a jump start on your academics at the University of Montana. Rather than waiting until the fall to get started on your academics, why not start in the summer?

This is a great opportunity for entering students (traditional freshman and/or transfers) to get ahead on their coursework, get to know campus early, and participate in smaller classes.

Students will become familiar with campus resources, professors, other students, and the ins and outs of college living before the majority of the student body returns for the fall semester - all while earning credits towards their degree. 

Here is a list of suggested courses for 2022
