Students’ primary advisors are assigned to students via the college they are in. We strongly recommend keeping a relationship with one’s primary advisor, for they will be the expert on students’ specific majors. Scholars’ Montana 10 advisors are here to provide scholars individualized support and assist them in everything they need. This can include assistance with a variety of topics, from: paying off a parking ticket on campus to evaluating if they are happy in their major.
If a student falls short of the Montana 10 Program Expectations, we ask them to be proactive in reaching out to their MT10 advisor to address the issue. Your Montana 10 team is on your side and believes in you. If a student falls behind a 2.0 for a semester, they will be required to be on an MT10 SAP (Success Action Plan). The Mt10 advisor will decide on the MT10 SAP, and it will be designed specifically for each student to help get them back in good academic standing.
Montana was initially funded as part of Montana’s performance-based funding model that grew from the MUS’s shared policy goals with the Montana legislature. This program is building the case of the education system’s capacity to organize broad implementation, so that similar integrated supports can be scaled statewide.
Currently, there are 7 institutions in the Montana University System participating in the Montana 10 program. University of Montana/Missoula College, Montana State University- Billings, Helena College, Montana Western and Montana Tech.
If you are not selected for the program, it will not mean Montana 10 does not believe in your academic success! In this scenario, we will reach out and walk you through the list of financial aid options, and academic supports available at your institution.
