    MCIS Career & College Search


    LNHS students use the Minnesota Career Information System (MCIS) to access their own high school, college and career informational portfolios. Students will find their own high school career interest assessments to aid in college/career planning. MCIS assists with colleges’ information, tuition, student/professor ratio, population, admission requirements, high school class suggestions, career descriptions, etc. on their website.

    LNHS students are able to set up their own portfolios while in high school and beyond. MCIS displays information concerning a student's career interest assessments, practice college entrance testing, college search information, college majors, career plans, maps out high school classes, scholarships, financial planning, and more. It also lists information for future jobs and the military. MCIS stores students’ own career/college comparison data for college search and career information.

    Students should visit the MCIS website, log in with Clever, (using their LNHS Gmail account information) to access their own accounts to store their own portfolio data.
