MSUB is a great school. I am studying art and education and I have had a great overall experience. However, I have had some trouble with the art department and my credits transferring and with advisors scheduling my classes. There are some of my credits that did not transfer and then my advisor tried making take courses that I have already taken. Once these issues were cleared up everything seemed to work out. The education department on the other hand it quite wonderful. They do the best that they can to work with you and help you finish school in the most efficient way possible. I highly recommend the education department at MSUB!
Review Montana State University - Billings
Going back to school, after spending six years post graduation raising my two children, was a very scary and intimidating experience for me. Luckily, MSUB made me feel very informed and confident, and there was always someone available to reassure me that I had made the right choice to go back and keep going. I felt so confident from my advisors at MSUB, that my GPA actually doubled from what it had been in high school!
Since I have been here at MSUB all I have had is great people there helping me along the way. They have an amazing TRIO'S program that has be a huge benefit to me as a first time college student. The campus is not so big that you have to drive to every point for your classes. Most of the Professors that I have had are AMAZING. I would recommend this college to anyone!
