When do you use “in to” versus “into”?
or fill in the name and email fields below:
in to is used when the following word is an infinitive.
i.e. come in to warm up, it's cold outside.
while into is a preposition refering to a direction of movement or action.
i.e. Please put the oranges into the box.
There is more, but this is a simple explanation. I hope it helps.
How about "on" Vs. "onto" EFL_Geek?Please explain.
Same rules apply. "Onto" is a preposition, you only use "on to" if one of the words is not a preposition i.e. part of a predicate/infinitive.
I speak perfect English and that is one of those things that native speakers just know. EFL Geek is correct but I couldn't think of that myself.

What about "I plan to continue on to graduate school"?
