Returning Students

Visiting Students

A visiting student is a student enrolled in a degree program at another college/university who plans to enroll in one or more courses at Itasca, but not pursue a degree (for example, a student from the University of Minnesota taking online precalculus from Itasca during the summer). If you are taking a class to transfer back to another Minnesota State school, you do NOT need to complete an Itasca application. If the college you are attending is NOT part of the Minnesota State system, you WILL need to complete an Itasca Community College Application. You will receive a StarID and create a password  when you apply. To register for classes,  sign into eServices with your StarID and password or call 218-322-2320 for assistance.

International Students

An international student is any student who is required to be registered under the federal Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS). Refer to our International Student Admissions webpage to learn about the admissions and enrollment process.
