Montana Technological University believes in fostering an inclusive environment for all of our students, so that they feel at home both on our campus and in the community. 

The office of International Services supports international students, employees, and scholars as they strive to achieve their educational, professional, and personal objectives. Our office assists international students’ transition to life in the U.S. and at Montana Tech, serves as the primary campus liaison to U.S government agencies (Department of Homeland Security, Department of State, Student and Exchange Visitor Program) in issues relevant to F1 and J1 students to ensure access to updated and accurate immigration information, and provides services necessary to meet the special needs of international students.

These pages are meant for current international students and scholars.  If you are a prospective international student, please go to:

To ease your transition to campus, we strongly suggest that you engage with other members of the community.  You may want to consider joining the international club (or any of our great clubs), participate in activities on campus, and explore Butte and the surrounding area.  If you are a current student and wish to connect with the international club, email Dr. Akua Oppong Anane (aopponganane@mtech.edu).  She is the current international club advisor.

If you have received an I-20 and have entered legally into the United States, it is imperative that you understand and follow all regulations outlined by the Department of Homeland Security.  The Director of International Services acts as Montana Tech’s principal designated school official and serves as your primary contact for questions regarding your F-1 status.  In order to be legally in the United States, you must report to the principal designated school official within 10 days of entering the country.  She will tell you about the regulations when you report to her.
