University of Montana Western
University of Montana Western, founded in 1893 in Dillon, Montana, was formerly the Montana State Normal School. It has a forty-six percent graduation rate within four years, but the twenty-year return on investment (ROI) for graduates is negative seventy-one thousand four hundred dollars, raising concerns about the one hundred nine thousand dollar cost. Despite its scenic location, potential students should carefully consider the financial implications. Graduates with a negative seventy thousand dollar ROI may question the overall value of education at the University of Montana Western.
