It's time to make tracks. Get ready for your UM experience.

Bear Tracks Registration Events

Registration events are designed to empower first-year students and their families to visit campus in the spring and take care of business ahead of time. Students must be admitted for the summer or fall term at the University of Montana Mountain Campus prior to attending a Registration Event.

Students will:

  • meet peers
  • complete academic advising
  • complete course registration
  • engage with faculty
  • pick up their student ID card
  • take care of placement testing
  • finalize their financial aid
  • and much more!  

Attending a Registration Event is crucial to every student's success.  

Students will leave their Registration Event feeling even more connected to the Griz Family and with their first semester course schedule in hand.

As a component of Bear Tracks, students will be invited to complete online My Academics tasks, which will prepare them for course registration.  Students will receive information by email to complete these steps online, prior to attending their Bear Tracks Registration Event.

Students and their families have the choice of five Registration Events scheduled throughout the spring.  The program will run from 8 a.m. to roughly 4 p.m. so please plan your travel accordingly.  Additional details will be provided once students are registered.

All on-campus Bear Tracks Registration Events have passed.  Student entering Fall 2019 should complete the Online Bear Tracks program prior to July 31st when it closes.

Students beginning Fall 2019 are expected to attend both a Bear Tracks Registration Event and Fall New Student Orientation.
