    • Provide proof of high school completion by submitting a high school transcript, high school diploma, GED or HiSET certificate or transcript, or an official college transcript.
    • Provide record of two MMR (measles/mumps/rubella) vaccinations.
    • Provide placement scores for math (required) and writing (encouraged) through ACT/SAT/Accuplacer/GED/HiSET.  Successful completion of previous college level math or writing credits may also satisfy this requirement (official transcripts must be provided.)

Send records to Admissions via fax (406) 771-2267, email at, or in-person/mail to 2100 16th Ave. South, Great Falls, MT 59405.

After completing your admissions file, you will receive an email with a link to Online Orientation. You will need to complete the orientation modules prior to meeting with an academic advisor to register for classes.

After completing online orientation, you will receive a phone call from Admissions to schedule an appointment with your Academic Advisor. We encourage this 45 minute appointment to be in person but you may choose a phone appointment. Your advising appointment will include a conversation about your academic goals, course selection, and instructions on how to register for classes.
