Life-Long Learning
Adult Learning Center -
The Adult
Learning Center (ALC) provides free
individualized instruction to students who
are not enrolled in college, but who wish
to improve their achievement level in basic
skills. Students learn basic reading, math
and English skills. Many students achieve
a level that enables them to complete the
General Educational Development (GED)
test successfully. Students who achieve a
passing score on the GED test receive a high
school equivalency certificate. The certificate
is a requirement that must be met prior to
enrollment in college. Students may design
their own schedules to accommodate jobs
and other responsibilities. The ALC can
be reached at 701-662-1568 or 701-662-

of Public Instruction.
