Undergraduate Admitted Students

Congratulations, future Orediggers! You have a bright future ahead of you at Montana Tech. We want to make sure your transition to campus is smooth and trouble-free.

Your Personal URL (PURL) can be your primary source for enrollment information, event registration, and other related resources. If you don't have your PURL address, just visit http://iam.mtech.edu/ and type your email address into the email field. The system will then redirect you to your PURL. 

Below, there is information on applying for housing, registering for classes, orientation, and online digital resources for students.

If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your admissions representative, the admissions office, or enrollment services. We’re here to help!


All new students are required to live in the residence halls their first year at Montana Tech. Living on campus will help you become more connected and engaged with the campus community and improve your academic experience. There are three halls available with a variety of room options to choose from. Housing is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to request a specific hall or a single room, apply early. Applications received before April 1st will receive priority consideration.

You can find the housing application on your Personal URL website, the same site where you applied for admission. For complete details on each residence hall, housing costs, meal plan options, and how to apply, visit the Residence Life pages


Class registration for new incoming students opens in May for the Fall/Summer semesters or November for the Spring semester and remains open until the Friday before classes begin. Follow the steps below to complete the registration process.


    To register for classes, we must have official test scores (or equivalent) and MMR Immunization on file in admissions. If either of these items is missing from your admission file, you are not yet eligible to register for classes. Review your admission checklist on your personal URL/personalized Montana Tech website and submit any remaining items as soon as you are able.

    No ACT or SAT scores? No problem. Go to our testing page to learn about other options and please don't hesitate to ask us questions: mtech.edu/testing/


    Are you ready to register for your classes? We're ready to help! Navigate to the "Get Registered for Classes!" link on your PURL, or contact the Admissions Office at 406-496-4791 or admissions@mtech.edu. We will verify your admissions file is complete, and if so, send your information to your academic advisor for registration.

Orientation is an exciting part of transitioning to college life and is an important part of becoming a Montana Tech Oredigger. Plan to arrive on campus the week before classes begin to explore the academic, cultural, and social opportunities on campus and within the Butte community!

Montana Tech is committed to student success. ALL NEW STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND ORIENTATION.

Visit the orientation page for more information.
