How to Obtain Salary Information for MSU (Bozeman) Employees

Montana University System (MUS) salaries are public information under Montana law. There is no central posting of salaries for the system. Each campus establishes its own procedures for providing access to these data. Montana State University provides salary data in several ways:

  1. For specific individual, department, or title based queries into Montana State University salaries, please contact the MSU Office of Planning and Analysis (OPA) via email:
  2. Aggregated data on salaries by titles, disciplines, and employee types are publicly accessible on the MSU Salary Information webpage.
  3. Benchmark data from similar universities on salaries by titles, disciplines, and employee groups are available from the OPA website. MSU’s agreements with the organizations that provide that proprietary information restricts access to MSU-affiliated individuals and cannot be publicly shared. You can view it from the MSU Salary Information webpage with an MSU NetID.
  4. Additional non-salary data on faculty and staff, e.g. demographic diversity data, are available on the OPA Employee Data webpage.

Since public employee salaries are public information, the MSU faculty salaries have been made available via multiple sources over the years. Prior to 2007, they typically appeared in the agenda items for the Board of Regents (BOR) meetings with the bulk of the salaries approved at the September meeting each year.
