Due to current COVID trends and public health experts' guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), as well as to be in alignment with the recent Executive Order 21-21 by Governor Walz, Inver Hills’ campus has made recent adjustments to on-campus operations. Please review the following carefully.

  • MDH and the CDC strongly recommend that anyone who is not fully vaccinated to continue to keep at least 6 feet of physical distance from others and to wear face coverings indoors as well as outdoors when social distancing cannot be maintained. Masks are strongly encouraged for all visitors to campus.
  • Please continue to self-monitor for COVID symptoms and stay home if you are not feeling well and seek medical advice as needed. All people who have not been vaccinated are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering in accordance with MDH and CDC recommendations until they are fully vaccinated.
  • Throughout July and August, Admissions Advisors have both on-campus and virtual staffing availability. Our office also has daily campus visit opportunities Monday through Thursday: please sign up for a Campus Visit session below. Friday services through July are delivered virtually. On-campus individual appointments are available by request and per availability; please call 651-450-3000 at least an hour in advance regarding possible availability, and please plan for next day or later appointments when possible.

We offer a variety of visits – both campus-based and virtual – that last about an hour. Here's what you'll accomplish during your visit:

Please be ready 5 to 10 minutes in advance of the session time. Session details will be sent via email at the address you provide in registration.

Please remember that if you cannot find a session that fits your schedule, just call or email us for other available options to talk with an Admissions Advisor.

Sessions relate to specific programs (such as nursing, paralegal, and more) or lived experiences (adult learners, general questions, and otherwise): we hope we meet your needs and questions!

While classes may look a little different than in the past, we are committed to providing a rich learning experience while keeping everyone safe. Learn more about course delivery, COVID protocols, staying healthy before the semester and more.
