Getting a quality higher education does not have to break the bank.

Montana Western offers our experiential learning at a cost you can afford, which means our students get more personal attention and more hands-on learning for a fraction of the cost of other regional universities.

There are also many opportunities for financial aid and a host of scholarships and grants available for students. Don’t let the cost of college deter you from getting the education you deserve.

The popular Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) scholarship can significantly defray the cost of tuition for qualifying out-of-state students.

Our admissions and financial aid offices are here to help guide you through the process.
