UMW among lowest in nation for student debt.

August 23, 2016

LendEDU is an online marketplace for student loans and student loan refinance. According to their website, LendEDU was created to help student loan borrowers find transparency without damaging their credit. 

“Our affordable tuition along with Experience One make us a unique and attractive option for students from not only Montana, but the entire country,” Chancellor Beth Weatherby said. “Montana Western consistently receives positive reviews for our innovative approach to education, premier programs and location.”      

Montana Western students take a single class at a time under UMW’s block scheduling program called Experience One. UMW is the only U.S. public four-year university offering block scheduling.   

“We are pleased LendEDU has recognized Montana Western as an institution where students can receive a high quality education without taking on a great deal of debt,” Interim Financial Aid Director Arlene Williams said. 

The LendEDU ranking comes on the heels of numerous positive rankings for UMW, most notably the Money Magazine ranking that declared Montana Western “the best university in Montana.”
