COLLEGE IN THE SCHOOLS (CITS)
Concurrent enrollment provides high school students the opportunity to take college-credit courses in their local high school. The courses are taught by college-credentialed high school teachers, who work in collaboration with Hibbing Community College’s faculty. Students enrolled in the College in the Schools (CITS) program have the opportunity to receive a rigorous education, save tuition money, and earn college credit while remaining in a high school setting.
The college or university will make the final determination on a student's readiness based on college placement tests (or nationally-standardized test scores). Students must place at college-level to register for classes.
If you are interested in CITS, talk to your high school guidance counselor and college/ university admissions staff or go to Minnesota State Post-Secondary Enrollment Options. For more information on Hibbing Community College's CITS program, please see below.
