Mandatory new student orientation for those wanting to earn their high school equivalency certificate, the HiSET, will be held the first Tuesday of every month at three times: 9 a.m. and 1 and 6 p.m. The first orientation will be held on September 2 with other orientations scheduled for October 7, November 4, and December 2.

“Participants should notify the Adult Learning Center if they have any personal schedule conflicts with these dates, makeup orientations may be offered in special circumstances,”

The Adult Learning Center helps prepare students for the HiSET, which is equivalent to the GED. In addition, the center provides free assessment and instruction to out-of-school adult students, 16 years old and older, who need to improve their basic reading, writing, science, social studies, and math skills in order to reach their educational and employment goals.

The Adult Learning Center at Casper College is located in the Werner Technical Center on the Casper College campus, and all programs offered at the center are free of charge.
