College Credit

College In the Schools (CIS) Opportunities

INFINITY Online offers certain courses as concurrent courses. If a student meets the requirements, they may take the course to receive College in the Schools (CIS) credit and also receive High School credit. If a student does not meet the requirements, but would like to take the course for High School credit only, they may elect to do so when they register for their course with Infinity.  (See qualifying criteria at the bottom of this page)
 
How to Register for a CIS course with INFINITY?
Step 1. Enroll and register for the course with INFINITY Online.

Step 2. Submit an application with Itasca Community College.

Step 3. Have your High School send qualifying GPA (high school transcript) and qualifying test scores to Infinity Online at helpdesk@mninfinity.org.

Note: You will not be officially enrolled in any CIS course until this information has been submitted and all qualifying criteria verified.
