Postsecondary Enrollment Options

Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) is a program that allows 10th-, 11th- and 12th-grade students to earn both high school and college credit while still in high school, through enrollment in and successful completion of college-level courses at eligible participating postsecondary institutions.

Most PSEO courses are offered on the college or university campus or online. Each participating college or university sets its own requirements for enrollment into the PSEO courses.

Eleventh and 12th-grade students may take PSEO courses on a full- or part-time basis; 10th graders may take one career/technical PSEO course. If they earn at least a grade C in that class, they may take additional PSEO courses.

Students must meet the PSEO residency and eligibility requirements and abide by participation limits specified in Minnesota Statutes, section 124D.09.

Costs

There is no charge to PSEO students for tuition, books or fees for items that are required to participate in a course. Funds are available to help pay transportation expenses for qualifying students to participate in PSEO courses on college campuses.

Timelines

We provide information to all students in grades 8-11 and their families during registration for the following year (by March 1). Students must notify the school by May 30 if they want to participate in PSEO for the following school year.
