Montana State Online

Montana State Online is a central location for information about online programs, online tuition, applications, registration, adding and dropping online courses, student resources and grades. 


To take any online courses or to enter an online degree program an applicant needs to apply formally to MSU Graduate School for admission.

How do I register for an online course?

The applicant must be accepted into MSU as either a degree or non-degree student before registering. Once accepted, the student will receive information about how and when to register. Please note that many courses have particular prerequisites. Students may need to talk to an academic adviser before proceeding. Students will register online with the MSU MyInfo system.

Online course System

Online courses at MSU utilize the Brightspace system.

Do I have to be immunized before I can register?

Montana State University requires all newly accepted graduate and undergraduate students, whether degree-seeking or non-degree, to show proof of immunization against certain diseases before registration. Students who are taking only courses at a distance are exempt. Therefore, the requirement may be waived. If a student falls under this category, please call Student Health Services at 406-994-2311 if an immunization hold is preventing registration or other student administrative functions. Immunizations holds are reinstated in November and April. If you are a continuing online student, you may have to contact Student Health Services each fall and spring.

Please note that if a student registers for an MSU on-campus course at a later date, he/she must meet the immunization requirement.
