Chancellor's Welcome

Welcome to Montana State University-Northern.

MSU-Northern is more than a traditional four-year university.  We offer 35 programs that range from apprenticeships, certificates, associates, bachelors, and master level instruction.  Our practical, hands-on programs prepare our graduates to move into rewarding careers.

The opportunities available to you at MSU-Northern are more than the normal classroom experiences.  I believe we provide a richly satisfying array of nationally recognized sports programs, clubs, organizations, and on-campus activities that will provide you with a well-rounded college experience.  At MSU-Northern, helping our students succeed is our number one goal, and I am confident that you will receive “An Education that Works.”

MSU-Northern is small enough to provide you with the friendly atmosphere and personal attention you long for, yet large enough to provide you with the quality education you need to succeed in a competitive job market.

This catalog serves as your guide for academic programs, university services, and institutional policies.  Please refer to it often.   Our advising professionals can help you plot a course that will help you achieve your educational goals.  It is our singular goal to provide a supportive, student-centered environment that will promote your success, both as a student scholar and as a community leader in your life after MSU-Northern.

I look forward to seeing you on campus, and, on behalf of everyone at Northern, please accept our warmest welcome!
