Our Classes



with Brian DuMontier

Calendar Current session started Jan 1, 2024

Even if you didn't finish high school, there is another way to demonstrate you have the same skills and knowledge as a high school graduate — through testing and earning your High School Equivalency (HSE) credential.

The HiSET exam is the only test Montana uses to measure high school equivalency skills in Language Arts: Reading/WritingMathematics, Science, and Social Studies.

Salish Kootenai College's Department of Academic Success offers HiSET® Prep at no cost to students. We encourage you to explore our Prep program and the variety of free resources to help familiarize you with both the exam questions and the computer-delivered testing experience.

Our resources includes HiSET®Academy, the only home study course 100% approved by the HiSET Exam. Our HiSET practice tests will help ensure you pass the exam the first time. Study on your mobile phone anytime you have a few extra minutes.

Prepaid test vouchers are also available to those HiSET® Prep participants who qualify.

After you've passed the HiSET exam, the Montana Office of Public Instruction will issue your high school equivalency credential — and you can be confident that your skills and knowledge are on the same level as a traditional high school graduate. GRADUATION CEREMONY for those who pass all five exams

     Next Test Dates:  March 23; April 13 & 27; May 4 & 18; June 1 & 14



HOW TO STUDY & LEARN: metacognition, note taking, active reading, the study cycle


with Brian DuMontier

Calendar Current session started Feb 16, 2024 at 2 pm, runs for 1 week

Mon & Wed February 12 - 14, 2024

Are your study techniques a lot of hard work that don’t seem to help your grades? Maybe it's because those study habits you developed back in high school aren't enough to sustain your efforts in college.

But don’t worry—we’ll examine how to analyze your current strategies, see what’s working and what isn’t, and come up with new, more effective study techniques. To do this, we’ll introduce you to the idea of “metacognition," "active" notetaking & reading methods, and a model called the Study Cycle to ramp up your ability to learn and retain what you've learned. 

The goal is to alleviate some of your academic stress, increase your enjoyment of learning, and hopefully bolster your overall GPA. 

  This course will also be synchronous via Zoom meeting.
