  • Simultaneously attend multiple campuses by taking a course (likely online) at a "host school while remaining enrolled at   the "home" school. 
  • Enroll as a Visitor at a "host" campus for a semester with the intent of returning "home" the following semester. 

Transfer from a Montana University System (MUS) School

If you are transferring from a Montana college other than Montana State University, MSU Billings or Great Falls College MSU the process is simple.  

  1. Ask the Registrar's office at your previous school for a Transmittal of your file to MSU-Northern. 
  2. Pay $8 instead of the $30 application fee. 
  3. All transcripts and application information are sent together. 
  4. If you have not completed your final semester when you submit the transmittal, make sure to send a complete official transcript at the end of your final semester.
