Registration for FVCC Senior Institute Opens January 31

Registration for Flathead Valley Community College’s annual Senior Institute opens January 31 at 8 a.m. The program provides opportunities for people ages 65 and older to enroll in academic credit classes and stay active during the winter. Participants learn current information, develop skills and connect with other senior citizens.

Seniors can enroll in one of the program’s 19 classes on topics ranging from the arts to history to science. The cost to enroll for residents of Flathead or Lincoln counties varies from $50 to $60 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 February 16 and concluding March 23. 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 31 or mail a registration form to the college. Students who did not attend Senior Institute last year or who have not participated in other credit classes at FVCC in the past 12 months must also submit a non-degree application for admission. College officials recommend completing the admission application prior to January 31 in order to save time during the registration process.
