NEW POLICY:   CONTINUOUS ENROLLMENT FOR TRANSFER STUDENTS

SUBJECT:         ACADEMIC AFFAIRS


Board policy: 

 

1.       Students are expected to keep informed of changes in degree programs and

requirements by reviewing the bulletins that are published regularly and to adjust their programs of study accordingly.

 

2.       Students planning to transfer from one four-year college to another within the Montana

University System or from any of Montana's two-year institutions to a unit of the Montana University System may choose to graduate under the program of study (degree requirements) in effect at the new or baccalaureate destination institution at the time they first enrolled at the original or sending institution if

a.       they have maintained continuous, full-time enrollment in good standing;

b.       they meet the admissions requirements for the major at the new institution; and

c.       the required courses are still available. 

 

3.       It is strongly recommended that such students avail themselves of advising services from the

department to which they hope to transfer and from which they plan to earn the bachelor’s degree.

 

4.  Students who interrupt their enrollment (except as provided under a Service-members’ Opportunity College agreements) are required to adopt the requirements in effect at the new institution when they re-enter a unit of the Montana University System.
