WHAT IS PSEO? Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) program 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, nonsectarian courses at eligible participating postsecondary institutions. Most PSEO courses are offered on the campus of the postsecondary institution; some courses are offered 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.
Tuition and fees
Required course items are paid for on behalf of the student; tuition, fees and required textbooks are provided to the student at no cost. Consumable supplies specifically required for a class, such as art supplies and film, also are covered. The program does not cover general school expenses such as notebooks, pens, pencils, test-out fees, or non-consumable supplies. The cost of on-campus housing is not covered by the program.
Students must notify their school by May 30 if they want to participate in PSEO for the following school year.
