College Pass

Inver Hills is a participating college in College Pass, a cost-savvy, climate-aware way to travel for school, work or fun for $175 or less per semester. As an Inver Hills student, you are eligible for unlimited rides on buses and trains for an entire semester. You can pick up your pass at the College Bookstore located on the lower level of the College Center.

Parking and Parking Fees

Parking is available on campus for students, staff members and visitors. You do not need a special permit. You may park in any parking space not marked as reserved. Well-defined parking regulations are enforced by the Inver Grove Heights Police Department. Reserved parking is available in the Liberal Arts and Fine Arts lots. Individuals with State of Minnesota Handicapped Parking Certificates may park in either the College Center or Fine Arts lots.

Parking fees are included as part of your tuition/fees assessment per credit. Staff members also pay a parking fee. Parking fees may be waived by completing a Parking User Fee Exemption Request form available from the Business Office. To qualify for the exemption, the student or staff member must:
