Welcome to Great Falls College-Montana State University!

Navigating at a new college is exciting but can also be overwhelming. You’ll be most successful if you understand campus processes and expectations before you start classes.

We require all new, transfer, and re-admitted students to complete these short Online Orientation videos (less than 30 minutes total). The videos will highlight some crucial information you need to know about registering and preparing for your classes.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR ONLINE ORIENTATION:

  1. WATCH: View the 5 videos posted below. Each video is approximately 5 minutes. Please be prepared to write down notes or questions as you go.

  2. QUIZ: At the end of video 5, you’ll be directed to a short quiz to test your knowledge from the videos.

AFTER YOU COMPLETE ONLINE ORIENTATION:

  1. WAIT: After you submit your quiz, a member from the Admissions team will contact you by phone and/or e-mail to schedule an appointment with your academic advisor. Please be patient and remember to regularly check your e-mail and make sure your voice mailbox is setup and able to accept new messages.

  2. MEET WITH YOUR ADVISOR: We will arrange an appointment for you with a professional academic advisor. You will meet with them in-person on our campus or by phone. That 45 minute appointment will cover everything you need to know to create your purpose, path, and plan.

  3. ENROLL IN YOUR CLASSES: You will register for your classes at your advising appointment.

  4. BUY TEXTBOOKS: Once you register for classes, you’ll be able to purchase textbooks and other supplies.

  5. ATTEND OPENING DAY: You’ll receive an invitation to attend Opening Day. This event for new students is held the Saturday before classes begin each semester.

  6. START YOUR SUCCESS at Great Falls College MSU.


If you have any questions or concerns through this process, please reach out to Admissions at admissions@gfcmsu.edu or (406) 268-3700.
