The University of Montana provides the opportunity to apply as a Distance Education only student. Students who are interested in applying for this status must meet the University's general admission requirements for freshman and transfer students. This admission status is designed for students who are registering for online courses only and do not plan to take any courses on campus. When applying for this status, students are not required to provide proof of immunization or complete a medical History Form. Since Distance Education only students have some of the mandatory fees waived, they are not eligible for health insurance, services provided by the Curry Health Center, athletic event discounts or the Campus Recreation facilities.
Currently enrolled students or former University of Montana students must change their status by completing a Distance Learning Change of Status Form. This form is available at: umonline.umt.edu/forms/change_request.php
