Flathead Valley Community College’s Adult Education program is offering two opportunities for Libby-area residents to participate in Montana High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) preparatory classes, open to students age 16 and up. The first session of classes begins on Monday, March 8 and runs until Thursday, April 15, and the second session begins on Monday, April 26 and runs until Thursday, June 3. Classes are held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on the Lincoln County Campus in Libby.

Pre-registration is required in order to participate in the classes. Students age 18 and under must meet specific requirements to be able to register. All students must have a valid form of identification issued by the state or federal government.

The Lincoln County Campus offers HiSET testing throughout the year. Tests are scheduled for the following dates in 2021: Feb. 12, Feb. 26, Mar. 19, Mar. 26, Apr. 9, Apr. 16. It is not necessary for students age 17 and older to participate in the preparatory classes to take the HiSET.
