Each student is responsible for knowing and complying with all regulations regarding admission procedures. A student’s failure to be informed or to comply will not excuse a student from responsibility or from any penalty or difficulty which he or she may encounter. The falsification or suppression of any information requested on the application for admission will be grounds for cancellation of registration.
In order to be in compliance with Montana state law, students born on or after January 1, 1957 who are taking seven or more credits OR are enrolled in a degree program must either:
Show proof of two vaccinations against measles and one against rubella. Immunizations must have been given after 1967 and after the student’s first birthday and must have been administered at least thirty days apart. Current immunizations must have been administered in the form of the MMR vaccine. Immunizations must be documented by a physician, registered nurse or school official.
Show documentation of having contracted measles and rubella. Documentation by a physician is required including dates of illness.
File a medical or religious exemption.
International students have additional immunization requirements. Please refer to the section entitled “INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS” for additional information.
The Montana University System classifies all applicants for admission and currently enrolled students as either in-state or out-ofstate. This classification affects admission decisions and fee determinations. The basic rules for making the classifications are found in Board of Regents’ policy. If you have questions regarding your residency status, please contact the Admissions Office. A copy of the “Montana University System Student Guide to Montana’s Residency Policy” will be forwarded to you. The Guide contains the policy and a Residency Questionnaire that may be submitted by individuals who believe they are eligible for in-state tuition and fees.
All applicants should apply for admission as early as possible, but at least one month prior to registration. This will insure proper processing for registration and allow time for an evaluation of credits. Applicants whose files are not complete by the registration date may be required to register late and pay late fees. International students have different processing timelines; please refer to the section entitled “INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS” for additional information.
Applicants for Advanced Placement credit should ask the College Entrance Examination Board to submit official examination scores to the Office of the Registrar. Grades of 3, 4, or 5 on College Entrance Examination Board Advanced Placement Examinations will result in the granting of credit upon completion of 12 semester credits of coursework at Montana State University-Northern. This credit will be awarded to degree seeking students for corresponding courses at Montana State University-Northern. Grades will not be awarded. A notation of the award will be placed on the student’s transcript.
