Your advisor will help you plan your schedule so as to meet degree requirements in a timely and efficient manner and also help you explore your interests and develop an area of depth where you can combine your interests with your future career goals.
Once admitted, students will be assigned a faculty advisor based on their area of interest. Assignments are made at the Freshman Orientation sessions held at various times throughout the year or by contacting the Environmental Studies office.
Once admitted, students should receive a printout from the Enrollment Services Office showing what courses UM has accepted for transfer credit. Environmental Studies will need that information in order to determine your status within Environmental Studies and who best can advise you. You can mail a copy of it or fax it to the Environmental Studies Office at:
University of Montana
Environmental Studies Program
Missoula, MT 59812-4320
Attention: Request for Transfer Student Advising
Fax: (406) 243-6090
If you have not yet been officially accepted by the University of Montana but are seeking an informal review of your course work to determine if Environmental Studies is right for you, please mail or fax a transcript to the address above. Please note that Environmental Studies faculty advisors do not determine what UM will accept - you will have to apply for admission for your course work to be officially accepted for transfer credit.
