    Spring PSEO Informational Meeting

  • PSEO Descriptions

    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, 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.

    There is no charge to PSEO students for tuition, books or fees for items that are required to participate in a course. Students must meet the PSEO residency and eligibility requirements and abide by participation limits specified in Minnesota Statutes, section 124D.09. If a school district determines a pupil is not on track to graduate, she/he may continue to participate in PSEO. Funds are available to help pay transportation expenses for qualifying students to participate in PSEO courses on college campuses. Students must notify their school by May 30 if they want to participate in PSEO for the following school year. For current information about the PSEO program, visit the Minnesota Department of Education’s Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) webpage.

    PSEO Meeting Slides - 3/20/20

    PSEO Application 2020-2021  **We need this for ALL PSEO students (returning or new) and we need a separate one for each college you apply to.**

    -This updated form from MDE has a spot where you can type signatures instead of having to print and sign. You can fill out the form and email it directly to your counselor without having to worry about getting a "wet ink" signature.

    Waseca High School PSEO Contract **We need this form for ALL NEW PSEO students. We need only one copy.**

    - This form is not one you can automatically fill out. There are several options. One option is to make a copy of the google doc, type your name in, and share it with your counselor. Another option is to print it out, sign it, take a picture, and send the picture to your counselor. Or you can fax or mail it to the school (details are in the presentation). 

    Participating PSEO Colleges/Universities

    - This is only required for students taking PSEO courses through Riverland Community College.  Students will need to work with their School Counselor to make sure that they are registering for the correct core course(s).
