Students attending Montana Western are required to carry health insurance. A charge for health insurance is automatically added to all student accounts each semester. To waive these charges, students must demonstrate proof of insurance to the Business Services Office at the start of each semester.
The financial aid budget, also called the Cost of Attendance, includes average tuition, fees, books, supplies and standardized living expenses for the student only. Expenses of family members cannot be included in the budget, except for dependent care expenses. Financial aid "need" is determined by subtracting the expected family contribution (EFC) and other education resources (i.e., Job Service benefits, Vocational Rehabilitation or SRS, Tribal Education Funding, and scholarships) from the cost of attendance.
