What we’re able to do through MN Reconnect

Every adult learner needs different support services to complete their program. After an absence from college, the assistance you need now can look very different than it did originally. Inver Hills Community College can support you with personalized academic planning and on-campus counseling, among other services.

The defining factor of MN Reconnect is access to a navigator. You will not be in this alone; your navigator will continue to support you until you complete your desired program. Your navigator is with you every step of the way from choosing your classes, filling out a FAFSA and acquiring financial aid, to registering on time.

Together, we will design a custom plan for completion of your chosen program. Your academic progress will be evaluated on a continuous basis and you will be connected to the support services that IHCC can offer to ensure your success.
