Student Opportunity Services/TRIO at Montana State University Billings has scheduled a “Return to Learnseminar Jan. 5-6 at the university. The free program is designed for any student, but especially for those who have been out of a formal education setting for a while and are interested in either entering or returning to college. Presentations and activities focus on making the transition to college pleasant, meaningful, and less stressful.


Prospective students have the opportunity to learn about financial aid, study skills, tutoring resources, advising and career options. “Return to Learn” is open to everyone. Adults who are in job transitions, transfer students and those with disabilities will find this seminar extremely helpful and enjoyable.


“Return to Learn” will be held in the MSU Billings Liberal Arts building, Room 205, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both Jan. 5 and Jan. 6. Although pre-registration is not necessary, it is appreciated.
