Inver Expands Evening & Accelerated Options for Adult Students

Fall 2019 evening classes for A.A. degree-seeking students balancing work, family and life

Going to college while working a full-time job can be challenging. Juggling numerous responsibilities can make finding time for school during the day nearly impossible.

Starting fall semester 2019, Inver Hills Community College is making things a bit easier by expanding course offerings in the evenings. Students will find a wide variety of evening classes to complete their Associate of Arts (A.A.) requirements. Classes offered range from Art to Biology to Public Speaking to Psychology to English to Chemistry and a whole lot more.

Fall Semester 2019 Evening Schedule

The Minnesota Transfer Curriculum requires students to fulfill different goal areas. All these goals can be met through evening classes starting this fall. The courses also transfer to other Minnesota State colleges and universities, and often to the University of Minnesota and private institutions.

“We know going to school while working can be a challenge and want to make earning a degree as convenient as possible,” said Dean of Liberal Arts Barbara Curchack, PhD. “This expanded schedule adds to our other flexible offerings, like online courses and accelerated schedules, to help working adults achieve their educational dreams. No matter where you are in life, you are college material.”

This schedule enhancement joins a growing list of options meant to help those who wish to start or return to college.

Former Inver Hills students who want to return and finish what they started can take advantage of the MN Reconnect program. A personal navigator will help students steer through academic planning, registration, financial aid and more.

A wide range of services can help students who are balancing work, family and life in their pursuit of a degree and a better life. These options include:
