MSU BILLINGS NEWS SERVICES — Anyone in the Billings and Yellowstone County area who has been away from higher education for a time or has delayed getting started, can get the personalized assistance they need to get started at an special event sponsored by Montana State University Billings.


“College Now” is especially designed for adults who, for any reason, have been postponing their college education and want to get back on track. It will be held Saturday, Nov. 15 from 9 a.m. to noon at the MSU Billings College of Technology Health Sciences Building, 3803 Central Ave. It is free and open to the public.


Children’s activities for children over age five will be provided by Kids on Campus, an arm of the MSU Billings College of Professional Studies and Lifelong Learning. Those who attend and apply for admission can also find out about receiving their first three college credits free. 


MSU Billings representatives will be on hand to assist with questions on the admissions process, advising, financial aid and class schedules. And potential students can learn about how they can get started on their education pathways as early as January if they apply and register soon.  Some of classes available both onsite and online starting this spring include:
