Understanding Annual Tuition and Fees
The biggest cost associated with college is the cost of tuition. This is the price you pay for the courses you take each term.
Attending an MUS school as a Montana state resident allows you to pay in-state tuition, which is generally a much more affordable option than going to an out-of-state school. The types of colleges you are interested in attending will also determine the cost of your education, as tuition at a two-year school is generally much lower than tuition at a four-year school. Other college costs include things like housing, transportation, books, insurance, and food.
Ways to Lower College Costs
You may cut costs by starting at a two-year college to take your general classes and then transferring to a four-year program to take your degree-specific classes, or by living at home while you study.
Other smart moves like saving for college early, taking dual-enrollment classes in high school, applying for scholarships and financial aid, and having a student job can help lower the overall cost.
