Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO)
Students can get a jump start on earning college credits by taking college courses while they are in still in high school through Minnesota’s PSEO program. This program allows students to take college courses tuition free, saving both time and money on completing a college degree. PSEO courses may also fulfill high school course requirements and count toward a high school diploma.
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 courses.. Many high schools offer PSEO courses through concurrent enrollment, allowing students to take college courses taught by highly qualified high school teachers without having to leave the high school. Under certain circumstances, students in 9th or 10th grade may also be allowed to take concurrent enrollment courses.
The college or university will make the final determination on a student's readiness based on college placement tests (or nationally-standardized test scores). Students must place at college-level to register for classes.
If you are interested in PSEO, talk to your high school guidance counselor and college/ university admissions staff or go to Minnesota State Post-Secondary Enrollment Options. For more information on Hibbing Community College's PSEO program, please see below.
