Post Secondary Enrollment Option Program
The Minnesota Post Secondary Enrollment Option (PSEO) program allows high school 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students to take courses and receive both high school and transferable college credit. Courses are available on campus, online, or via ITV. Some PSEO students graduate with their Associates degree at the same time they receive their high school diploma. To participate in the PSEO program, a student must inform their school district by May 30 of each year of the student’s intent to enroll in any post-secondary courses during the following school year and meet CLC PSEO Admissions requirements.
The PSEO program will cover the cost of tuition, fees and books for eligible courses whether you are part-time or full-time. Students are not allowed to take courses with additional fees that exceed a total of $100, or remedial courses (below 1000 level).
