The University of Montana has planned for a smaller student body, budget and faculty in the 2020 Fiscal Year. On Wednesday, the Montana University System published its campuses' FY 2020 operating budgets, which the Montana Board of Regents will vote on when it meets in Butte next week. Undergraduate enrollment at UM’s flagship Missoula campus has dropped 33.5% since 2011, and it stood at 9,407 last spring. During Fiscal Year 2019, which ended June 30, UM had undergraduate enrollment of 9,247 full-time equivalent students.
