Postsecondary Enrollment/Dual Enrollment

Minnesota high school student PSEO and concurrent enrollment activity

 

Minnesota high school students can earn college credit while in high school through the following dual enrollment programs. Students may

  • Take courses at a postsecondary institution through the Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) program. Courses are taught by college professors on college campuses, with each participating postsecondary institution setting its own enrollment requirements for admission.
  • Take courses offered at their high school taught by a qualified high school instructor or college instructor; sometimes referred to as concurrent/dual enrollment or "College in the Schools." Concurrent enrollment serves high school students enrolled in a postsecondary course taught during the regular school day and offered through a partnership between a high school and a college or university. Qualified high school instructors or college faculty teach the courses, which are offered at the secondary school or another location.
  • Take courses offered online taught by a college instructor.

PSEO provides students with a great variety of class offerings and the opportunity to pursue challenging coursework. The program is administered through the Minnesota Department of Education.
