We Love Transfers

Whatever path you took to get here, we're thrilled that you're interested in transferring to Montana Technological University. Our engaging student experience, rewarding academics, and scenic Butte, Montana location are just a few reasons to join our community of determined doers, committed to successful futures and improving lives.

Whether you transfer from another four-year college program or community college, or you are returning to school after taking some time off, you'll fit right in on our diverse campus. About 20% of each incoming class is made up of transfer students.

    • It is stamped with the institution’s official seal and delivered to Montana Tech in a sealed envelope.
