“Classes at UM begin Monday, Aug. 30, but the Montana University System has announced it will extend important deadlines for students fighting wildfires. The extension gives student firefighters extra time — until Sept. 20 — to meet registration, financial aid, housing and other deadlines.

To take advantage of the extended deadlines and reserve space in courses for which they are registered, UM students fighting fires must call 406-243-6566 by Monday, Aug. 23. The number, in operation 24 hours a day, will play a recording asking students to provide their name, student identification number, the name of the agency they work for, and information about their assigned rooms in residence halls, family housing or elsewhere.

The extension applies to all students involved in the firefighting effort, including those providing support services for fire crews, as well as National Guard members and other military personnel.”
