Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO)
Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) is a state program that allows tenth, eleventh and twelfth grade students to enroll in courses at a college and earn both high school and college credit while still in high school. Only enrollment in and successful completion of college-level, nonsectarian courses at eligible participating postsecondary institutions apply. Most PSEO courses are offered on the campus of the postsecondary institution; some courses are offered online.
Please note: Each participating college or university sets its own requirements for enrollment into the PSEO courses. Eleventh and twelfth-grade students may take PSEO courses on a full- or part-time basis. Tenth graders may take only one career/technical PSEO course. If they earn at least a grade C in that class, they may take additional career/technical PSEO courses.
There is no charge to PSEO students for tuition, books or fees for items that are required to participate in a course. Students must meet the PSEO residency and eligibility requirements and abide by participation limits specified in Minnesota Statutes, section 124D.09. Funds are available to help pay transportation expenses for qualifying students to participate in PSEO courses on college campuses.
Students must notify their school by May 30 if they want to participate in PSEO for the following school year. Please meet with your high school guidance counselor to complete the notification.
