Services for students at MSU Billings
Any MSU Billings student registered for 7 or more credits is eligible to make an appointment with the ASMSU Billings attorney. The attorney is available for appointments made in advance during fall, spring and summer semesters. Due to personnel and time restrictions, the attorney is only able to handle certain types of cases. For a complete listing of the types of cases that cannot be handled, for further information, or to make an appointment, stop by the ASMSUB office, Room 213 in the Student Union Building, or call 657-2365.
ASMSUB offers a notarization service in Room 213 in the SUB. This service is provided free of charge Monday thru Friday, 8am to noon, and 1pm - 5pm. Questions? Call us @ 657-2365.
ASMSUB has an undergrad/grad research fund that students can utilize each year. However, this fund only has roughly $4,000 available each year.
If there is no more money available through the undergraduate/graduate research budget, then graduate students may obtain funding through a contingency request.
- Grad students can be eligible for contingency funding ONLY if they are not receiving credit for the project they wish to present. If they are receiving credit, it would be considered educational in nature; contingency funds are not allocated for educational purposes; they are for activities.
- Grad students must raise money to cover 30% of the costs...(can only ask for up to 70% of total costs)
Political Action Office
Each year, the student body president appoints a Student Political Activities Director to assist with various issues that arise throughout the academic year. This position offers a chance to gain experience in a variety of areas including lobbying, public relations work, media events coordination, and many others. During Legislative years, ASMSU Billings, along with other schools in the University System, employs a lobbyist to look after the interests of the students. The Political Action Office works closely with the lobbyist.
One of the fastest growing activities sponsored by the Intertribal Indian Club (ITIC) is the annual Powwow held on campus each spring semester. This celebration, recognized as one of the largest collegiate Indian Powwows in the state of Montana, features colorful American Indian costumes, dance contests feasts, artwork and give-a-ways. Literally thousands of spectators, as well as participants, travel across the U.S. and Canada to attend this event. Many student organizations and individuals on campus volunteer their time each April to assist the ITIC in making the Powwow a success.
