The MSMME program will challenge your mathematical thinking and ignite your enthusiasm for high school mathematics teaching!

MSMME is designated as a "distinctive" graduate program in the WICHE Western Regional Graduate Program, which allows teachers in 15 Western states to enroll in courses at Montana in-state tuition rates.

MSMME is designated as a "fully online" degree program at MSU-Bozeman, which allows teachers from states outside the WICHE region to pay significantly reduced tuition rates. 

Screening and Advising

All Applicants should complete and submit this screening and advising form; there is no charge for submitting this form. This form allows the Graduate Program Committee to pre-assess your qualifications and to advise you regarding specific application requirements. Be sure to list all Math and Statistics courses you have completed, including the number of credits and the grade in each course. Providing your GRE scores is optional. International applicants, in addition, need to submit TOEFL scores. Be sure to check which program option you plan to apply for, as well as the semester and year you wish to start. Also, indicate if you want to be considered for a Graduate Teaching Assistantship. Our graduate Program Committee will review this information and let you know if you should pursue the official application process. Applications to our programs are accepted on a rolling basis.

Tuition Note

The MSMME Program is approved under the Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP), which allows teachers from Western states to pay resident tuition. The participating states are Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.  If you are from one of these states, please include a request for "WICHE/WRGP status" in your file (this can be a brief memo naming your state of residence and requesting in-state tuition under the WICHE/WRGP program).
