Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO)
Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) is a program that allows 10th-, 11th- and 12th-grade students to earn college credit while still in high school, through enrollment in and successful completion of college-level courses. With traditional PSEO, these courses are generally offered on the campus of the postsecondary institution; some courses are offered online. Postsecondary institutions are not allowed to charge PSEO students for tuition, textbooks or support services. Students may be charged for equipment that becomes their property when the course or program is completed.
Most PSEO courses are only open to high school students during their 11th- and 12th-grade year, with each participating college and university setting their own requirements for enrollment into the PSEO courses and programs. Students may take PSEO courses on a full- or part-time basis, beginning in their 11th-grade year of high school.
Many two- and four-year colleges and universities in Minnesota offer online courses and some of them offer online degrees and certificates. Through the wide array of online courses offered in Minnesota higher education, it is possible for PSEO students in our state to complete the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum requirements and/or other courses that could result in an award in addition to their high school diploma.
By March 1 of each year, a district must provide up-to-date information on the district's website, and in materials that are distributed to parents and students, about the program--including information about enrollment requirements and the ability to earn postsecondary credit--to all pupils in grades 8, 9, 10, and 11. Download suggested PSEO language for district websites and materials.
Students must meet the PSEO eligibility requirements and abide by participation limits outlined in the Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) Reference Guide. However, if a school district determines a pupil is not on track to graduate, she/he may continue to participate in PSEO.
PSEO for 10th Graders to take Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses
Eligible 10th grade public, nonpublic and home school students may enroll in one state-paid Career Technical Education (CTE) course during the first term of PSEO enrollment. Not all institutions offer PSEO to 10th grade students or have CTE courses. Visit our PSEO for 10th Graders (CTE Pathway) page to learn about student and course requirements for the 10th Grade CTE Pathway. Please contact each institution for specific course questions.
For a list of campuses offering PSEO to 10th grade students, including eligible CTE courses, access the Participating Postsecondary Institutions List.
How to Enroll in PSEO
Interested and eligible 11th- and 12th-grade students should contact the high school counselor to find out if they are eligible. Interested and eligible public 10th-grade students should contact the postsecondary institution to find out which Career and Technical (CTE) courses are offered and what the application process is at that institution.
To assist the district in planning, students are required to inform their district of their intent to enroll in PSEO courses during the following school year by May 30. Students should seek guidance from their high school counselor to determine if PSEO is the right fit for them and their academic plan. Interested students must complete the Postsecondary Enrollment
Options Program Registration form.
