Registration for FVCC Senior Institute Opens January 30

Registration for Flathead Valley Community College’s annual Senior Institute opens January 30 at 8 a.m. The program provides opportunities for people ages 65 and older to enroll in academic credit classes, stay active during the winter and connect with other senior citizens.

Seniors can enroll in one of the program’s 26 classes on topics ranging from the arts to history to science. The cost to enroll for residents of Flathead or Lincoln counties varies from $62 to $72 per class. Out-of-district tuition rates apply to those residing outside of Flathead or Lincoln counties. The program will meet for six consecutive Fridays beginning Feb. 14 and concluding March 20. Students are treated to a free lunch and special program each Friday at 11:45 a.m. Classes follow lunch from 1 to 2:50 p.m.

Classes fill on a first-come, first-served basis. Students may register in person on January 30 or mail a registration form to the college.

Students who did not participate in Senior Institute last year or who have not taken other credit classes at FVCC in the past 24 months are required to submit an application for admission prior to registering for classes. College officials recommend completing the admission application prior to January 30 in order to save time during the course registration process.

A complete list of Senior Institute classes offered and the registration form are available online. For information and assistance, visit, call 756-3822 or stop by the FVCC Registration Office in Blake Hall at 777 Grandview Drive in Kalispell.
