As a collaborative…

NWSISD has worked with our member districts around the common goal of post-secondary preparedness and success. Each year, member
district students from high schools and middle schools are provided the opportunity to research potential schools by participating in college visits. College visits offer the college bound student a first-hand look at colleges and universities throughout the state and nearby
Midwest area.


A virtual option will still be provided for some visits. The bonus in the virtual experience is that students will have the opportunity to “visit” colleges within and outside of the Midwest area.

Your maximum number of student participants will vary based on the maximum number of students allowed on each college/career visit. Please limit your group to 15 – 20 students if a visit calls for 50 or less participants. If additional spaces become available, your group will be contacted to add more students. There will be a waiting list.

Please generate your own permission slips according to your building guidelines.

Groups signing up to attend visits must provide chaperones and organize transportation for their group. A ratio of one chaperone to every ten students is recommended.

If more than one district attends a college visit, fees paid for transportation may be reimbursed by the Minnesota Department of Education. You will need to fill out the ‚ÄúTransportation to Inter-district Desegregation or Integration Schools or Programs‚ÄĚ form to receive reimbursement. Click here for more information.

Please check back regularly to see updates and newly added visits.
