What do I need to apply now?

  • Be prepared for the residency questions. Have your Montana driver’s license ready, know the last time you registered your vehicle, and the last two years that you filed taxes. If someone else claims you on their taxes, you will be asked to complete the previously mentioned residency items with their information. It is important to put as much information as you can into residency, it will determine if you pay in-state or out of state tuition.
