Welcome to the University of Montana Western, a remarkably different kind of university where you can get a world-class education surrounded by everything that makes Montana extraordinary.
Montana Western is unique because we are the only public, four-year institution in the nation that offers Experience One, where taking one course at a time allows our students to engage in authentic, experiential education that can’t be replicated under a traditional semester schedule.
Also, as the institution with the lowest tuition and fees of any four-year institution in the state of Montana, and the WUE program that provides out-of-state students from neighboring states with a significant discount on their cost of attendance, UMW offers an unparalleled value in education.
