Being Patient Is the KEY! Just like in any type of application process, being patient really does pay off! Sometimes the financial aid process can be a hassle and you may get the &quot;run around&quot; before everything starts falling into place. If you are patient, this process will a bit more smooth, however, this process can be a pain if you stress out and become angry or irritated over being ran around. It is true, patience is a virtue!

It is very common for papers to get lost or misplaced, especially when there are hundreds of students all trying to take care of their financial aid the week before school starts. The truth is, the earlier the better.

The small town of Butte, MT is a very friendly environment. There are many attractions such as the "M". This is a lit up "M" on the top of hill that overlooks the town. It represents Montana Tech and when varsity sport teams win the "M" flashes into a "V" for victory! There are many local restaurants with great quality food. There are many festivals held in the town through out the year as well. The town is very supportive of the students and many employers work around student schedules. There are many small shops and a mall with bigger stores to meet shopping needs. Butte is a very exciting, enjoyable, and peaceful town.

Montana Tech is one of the few colleges offering my degree: Bachelors of Science, Network Technologies. However, Montana Tech is almost specifically dedicated to the educating of Medical, and Science (more towards technology and mining and engineering) related fields. Most of the professors are awesome and care about their students. The first traditional year of schooling is dedicated to "weeder" courses to make sure you are in the right degree for your educational needs. They are hard, but once you have successfully completed your first year, class size is a lot smaller and you get a better one-on-one experience with your professors. The Petroleum Engineering degree seems to be the most popular course especially for international students.

Registration is simple enough, pretty standard in comparison to most other schools. Curriculum is definitely math and science heavy, and work load is above average when it comes to degree related courses, but you get a lot more out of it from your professors. Special study options really are dependent upon degree and if there is actually any time for a special study course.
