UM Encourages All College-Bound Montana Residents to Apply During College Application Week

October 30, 2014

MISSOULA – The University of Montana will participate in Montana College Application Week, which is slated for Monday through Friday, Nov. 3-7.

During the week, UM will defer the $36 fee for seniors who apply, collecting the fee later only for those students who attend UM. Students who are Pell-eligible and attend UM will automatically have the entire fee waived.

Students applying to UM will receive the deferred fee benefit even if they apply to other colleges in Montana. UM will extend these benefits to all seniors in Montana even if the applicant’s high school did not register for the College Application Week program. The application fee also will be deferred or waived for students wishing to transfer or who have already graduated from high school.

Montana College Application Week is coordinated by Montana GEAR UP of the Montana University System, in collaboration with a steering committee representing the K-12 community, community-based organizations and all sectors of Montana’s higher education system. For more information visit
