Library Media Endorsement applicants must

  1. Be enrolled in a teacher education program or licensed/endorsed as a teacher and
  2. Have a 2.75 GPA.
The Library Media Endorsement application form is used by both The University of Montana-Missoula and The University of Montana-Western to determine eligibility for admission to the joint Library Media Endorsement program and to each institution.

Both UM-Missoula and UM-Western contribute to the lineup of Library Media Endorsement program courses. After gaining admission to both institutions, students enroll either simultaneously or alternately at UM-Missoula and UM-Western. Each semester, students register and pay fees at one or both institutions depending upon the unit offering the course(s) selected by the student.

Applicants select either UM-Missoula or UM-Western as their "home" institution by requesting an undergraduate degree admission status there; a nondegree admission status is requested at the institution not designated as the home institution. (Students who wish to apply to a master’s degree program should use this form and the UM-Missoula Graduate School application form.) The endorsement will be recorded and any financial aid will be administered by the home institution.
