Montana Residency Requirements

The Montana University System classifies all applicants for admission and students as either in-state or out-of-state. This classification affects fee determinations for admission to the campuses and admission to programs of limited enrollment. The basic rules for making the classification are found in Board of Regents’ residency policy. Each residency determination is based on the unique set of facts found in an individual’s case. If you have questions concerning your residency status, be sure to contact the unit to which you are applying for admission or at which you are already enrolled. Generally, the Admissions Office or the Registrar’s Office will be able to assist you.
