Concurrent Enrollment vs PSEO
Concurrent Enrollment and PSEO courses both count for high school and college credit for students. One of the biggest benefits of Concurrent Enrollment courses vs PSEO is that students receive in-person instruction from one of our teachers without having to travel to a college. Concurrent Enrollment classes flex around our school schedule, which is especially beneficial for students who are active in extra-curricular activities. Unlike PSEO courses, parents/guardians are also able to monitor the grades of their students in Concurrent Enrollment classes, as well as communicate with the instructor about concerns.

PSEO courses are courses that students in grades 10-12 can enroll in either online or on a college credit that counts for both high school and college credit.

Transferology is also a beneficial website that can help students figure out how their credits may transfer to another college. (Note: it is important to still check with colleges directly to verify credits will actually transfer. These resources are simply meant to give a general understanding of how credit are transferred.)

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.
