Welcome to Flathead Valley Community College. We offer our students the value of a private education at an affordable cost in one of the most beautiful areas in our nation.

In today’s changing times, FVCC remains responsive to meeting the needs of our community and in adapting to our world’s global economy. We continue to serve as a key resource for area dislocated workers by providing them with retraining opportunities and offering new programs to prepare them to return to the workforce. Many new programs are offered this year to help students acquire the education and training they need to be successful in their careers – whether they go right into the workforce or go on to earn four-year degrees.

At FVCC, students come first. There is no limit to the opportunities available for all students whether they recently graduated high school or are returning to college after raising their families. Students can complete two-year associate degrees or general education classes and transfer easily to four-year colleges and universities in Montana, or other states, without costly student loans. In addition, FVCC also offers over 50 career and technical programs that prepare students to enter rewarding careers immediately following graduation. Most of our graduates who enter the workforce stay in Montana, and the majority stay in the Flathead Valley.

FVCC provides students with the convenience of learning anywhere and anytime through online classes. We offer diverse financial aid packages and scholarship opportunities to help students fund their futures. With our excellent support services, small class sizes and outstanding faculty, we all work together to help every student succeed.

Our Continuing Education Center offers a wide range of educational and enrichment classes ranging from arts and crafts, dance and cooking to home and garden, language and computers for all interests. The Center also offers special programs for all ages as well as customized workforce training for area businesses and professional development opportunities for employees in the community.

We invite you to explore all of the possibilities we have in store for you at Flathead Valley Community College.
