Distance Only - Change of Status Form

Distance Only Status

Students who intend to enroll only in online courses may opt to change their student status to "Distance". Doing so may result in reduced tuition and fees and will waive requirements to submit an immunization form before being registering for classes. It is important to note that Distance students are not eligible for University of Montana Health Insurance, Curry Health Center Services, ASUM Services, discounted tickets for athletic events or access to Campus Recreation Services and can not live in campus housing. Distance students are not eligible to take on-campus courses.

Note: As a Distance Only Student, you will only be able to register for course sections with an Attendance Method of Internet / Online or Video Conferencing. These courses are denoted with a section number of 50 through 59.

This form can also be used to change your status from Distance Only back to Full Student status to include campus services. Your status may be changed only one time per semester and cannot be changed for the current semester after the 15th class day.

You can review Student Tuition and Fees by clicking on the semester-appropriate semester, then scrolling down the page to Online Only Students.

Please NOTE: Distance-only does not apply to WUE students.

To change your status, complete and submit the form below. NOTE: You will need to use your student email in order to complete the process. (Format Example: Firstname.Lastname@umontana.edu)

Upon submission, your request will be directed to the appropriate personnel — Registrar's Office, Kyle Brester (406) 243-2422 or Kendall Kihn, Graduate School (406) 243-2572.
