UMW News BureauMontana Western students fighting fires receive registration and other deadline extension. By Wally Feldt University of Montana Western student firefighters can breathe a sigh of relief as the university is extending its registration deadline to an additional two weeks for students fighting fires, Chancellor Richard Storey announced today. “That’s the beauty of our block system,” Storey said. “Although starting late, students can still earn 12 credit hours maintaining their full-time status and eligibility for financial aid on a pro-rated basis. Our students can miss a block and still continue their education without interruption.” Normal fall semester classes begin Aug. 24. However, with Montana Western’s unique Experience One, where students take one class at a time in four blocks per semester, fire fighters can skip the first block and begin class Sept. 21. Students are asked to call Montana Western’s registrars office at (866) 869-6668 as soon as possible to secure the extension. In addition, the normal $40 late-registration fee will be waived. The Montana Western residence Life office will reserve dorm rooms for firefighters until the extended deadline.
