Student Success

Our Goal

Student success at Montana Western is not a choice that we the staff and faculty make, but one the student does. We are here to offer the tools, guidance, and opportunity so students can be successful.
We encourage you to explore the different tools we offer to help students succeed, whether it be through tutoring, advising, career planning, service learning, or our Trio Student Support Services program.
