Montana State Flag

Montana is known for its western Rocky Mountain ranges and eastern plains. It is home to Native American reservations and wildlife refuges. With a strong mining history, Montana has come to be known as being rich in mineral reserves. There are 31 colleges in Montana, 18 of which offer online courses. By offering online colleges, Montana opens up its higher education institutions to students both in and out of state. Public, campus-based, and online colleges in Montana are managed and regulated by the Board of Regents, which appoints a commissioner to serve as the chief executive. In addition to Montana’s university system (MUS), which is mapped out on the state’s MUS website, there are also a number of private colleges in Montana. The Board of Regents provides education news for residents of Montana.
