Undergraduate Students

Ready to launch your business education in a supportive place that provides unparalleled career readiness? Let’s do it.

All undergraduate students must apply through the University of Montana Admissions Office.

Standard Admission

Step 1: Apply to the University of Montana. During the application process, you will have an opportunity to select Business Administration as your major.

First Year Direct Admission

Learn more about the Direct Admit Program

Step 1: Apply to the University of Montana. During the application process, you will have an opportunity to select Business Administration as your major. You must select Business Administration to be eligible for the Direct Admit Program.

Step 2: Once applied to the University, you can then apply for the Direct Admit Program. The University of Montana considers a number of factors when making direct admission decisions, including test scores and high school GPA. Priority deadline for application submittal is Feb. 1. The DAP application also doubles as the College of Business Scholarship Application, so you do not need to fill out a separate scholarship application.

Step 3: The College of Business will continue to review applications beyond the Feb. 1 priority deadline date until the cohort is complete. You will be contacted with an invite of acceptance or a notification of denial. There will be instructions in your invitation regarding how to accept your spot in the program. Direct admission students are eligible, and automatically considered, for a limited number of direct admission scholarships. Early acceptance ensures you don't miss any of these opportunities.

View Transfer Credit Equivalencies

  • Select the state in which you attended college and hit submit.
  • Select the institution which you attended.
  • The courses listed in the first four columns are the classes from your institution which will transfer to UM and the courses in the second four columns are the equivalent courses at UM.
  • If you do not see your institution listed, that means that we do not have a pre-existing transfer equivalency agreement with that institution. This does not mean that none of your classes will transfer. You will simply have to have your transcript officially evaluated by a transcript evaluator in the Admissions Office once you apply.
  • Please be aware that no transfer credits are “official” until your transcript is evaluated by a transcript evaluator.
