Have you been out of high school for 5 or more years? Are you a caregiver to someone? Have you worked in the same career for 3 or more years? If so, join us for any one of our evening orientation sessions at 4:45 p.m. An adult learner presentation will be delivered that is geared towards students juggling similar life responsibilities. You will also hear about alternative credit options, including an option to utilize work experience to accelerate your path towards graduation.

Transfer Students

Thank you for choosing Inver Hills to continue your education! We recognize that you probably know most of the basics about college, so instead of attending a traditional on-campus orientation, you have the option to participate in a one hour virtual orientation where an academic advisor will introduce you to Inver Hills' specific resources and provide information applicable to transfer students. If you have earned 15 or more college level credits with a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5, you can participate in a virtual orientation. Sign up here. Virtual orientations do not contain an individual advising component; however, we will provide you with information to connect with an advisor or counselor after orientation.

Veteran Students

Welcome! As veteran and military students, we know that your life is especially busy as you juggle multiple roles. As a result, our counselors provide an individualized orientation in an effort to help make the orientation, registration and veterans benefits process as simple as possible. Please call 651-450-3508 to schedule an hour appointment with a counselor for your Veteran/Military Orientation Appointment. In addition, if you have not already met with Sue Flannigan from our Veterans Service Office, we recommend scheduling an appointment with her on the same day by calling 651-450-3862. We are looking forward to meeting you!


If you have credits from a Minnesota State School, our transfer specialists will automatically access your transcript and award you transfer credit. If you attended a non-Minnesota State college, please submit official transcripts to the Enrollment Center. Submit your transcripts at least one week in advance to ensure that a transfer credit evaluation will be completed by your orientation session. Have questions about how credits transfer? Visit our site about transfer credit evaluation.
