Track Your Admissions Status Online!

  • Go to MSU's Website: http://www.montana.edu/
  • Click on "My Info" at the bottom of the page
  • Click on "Enter Secure Area" and follow these instructions:
    • User ID: Enter your 8 digit student/employee ID including the dash in front
      (i.e. -12345678) or 9 digit social security number (i.e. 003112123)
    • PIN: Your initial PIN is your birth dated entered as ddmonyyyy (i.e. 15jan1991)*
           *month must be entered lowercase
    • After your initial login, you will be prompted and required to change your PIN to protect your privacy and student records. Pay careful attention to the guidelines on required length and characters for your new PIN as listed. Once you have successfully changed your PIN, you will be asked a series of questions to personalize your account.
    • In the future, you will be allowed 5 attempts to login correctly. If unsuccessful, your pin will be disabled. If that happens, please contact the Registrar's Office at (406) 994-6650 for assistance. *IMPORTANT*: If you have forgotten your PIN, please enter your user ID and select the "forgot pin" button.
  • Select the option "Admissions Checklist"

HOW TO OBTAIN YOUR STUDENT ID NUMBER:
Once you have successfully logged in to the Secure Area, select the option "Personal Information". There you will be able to "View ID's" and see your MSU ID number (also called a GID or Generated ID). You may use this GID for all future logins.
