Argo Summer Adventure

If you’re a sophomore, junior or senior in high school interested in finding out more about UP, we invite you to attend our annual Argo Summer Adventure. It’s a campus visit event like no other! After a campus tour and information sessions, we’ll head out to the Missouri River on Saturday afternoon for a rafting trip for you and a parent or guardian – at no cost to you. We want you to experience life as an Argo, where our freshman seminar includes a whole year of Central Montana discovery and adventure, including mountain hikes, snowboarding, camping, and more. Check-in starts at 8:30am on Saturday, July 13.

Register now here.

Finally, be sure to look over our Freshman Checklist to ensure that you’ve got everything in order before classes begin. Welcome to the Argo Family!

Freshman Checklist

  1. Complete your application on our website
  2. Submit an official high school transcript. Official transcripts must be sent directly to the Admissions Office from your high school. Include transcripts from any dual enrollment or other pre-college programs that you have attended, and results of any AP tests you have taken.
  3. Official ACT or SAT score report if your score with test date is not recorded on your high school transcript. Our ACT code is 2410, SAT is 4058.
  4. Once we have your application and all required supplemental documents, you will be notified of the admission decision by mail, typically within two weeks.

After you have been admitted:

  1. Complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) at www.fafsa.ed.gov  and have the results sent to the University of Providence (school code 002527). The FAFSA is available beginning Oct. 1 in the year prior to the academic year for which you are applying.
  2. Students who are accepted for admission and who have provided their FAFSA information to the University of Providence will receive a financial aid award including institutional, state and federal aid for which they may be eligible, including education loans. You may be asked to provide follow up information as part of the financial aid process, so please pay attention to any communication from FAFSA or from the Financial Aid Office.
