About Us

Designed to strengthen basic reading, writing and math skills for adults, the Adult Education Program meets a variety of individual needs and responds to a diverse population of adult learners. Instruction is handled in small groups or by individual tutoring at no cost to participants. As a service to the Big Horn Basin, you will find us in many communities.

Individualized and small-class instruction in preparation for the Wyoming High School Equivalency Certificate (formally GED) is offered throughout the year. Northwest College is a HiSET Testing Center. Individuals wanting to take the class or test can make arrangements with the Adult Education Director.

English as a Second Language (ESL) is a program that teaches English language skills to adults whose first language is not English. The program seeks to develop an understanding of American culture and society to facilitate effective citizenship. Rosetta Stone® is available to supplement instruction when an ESL class is not available.

Wyoming High School Equivalency Certificate

As of January 1, 2014, a major change happened in the testing options for the Wyoming High School Equivalency Certificate (HSEC).  
The Wyoming Community College Commission approved multiple pathways to earn the Wyoming High School Equivalency Certificate.  In addition to the GED 2014®, two alternative tests – HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) and TASC (Test of Assessing Secondary Completion) will be available in Wyoming.  All three tests are based on the federal College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS).
