Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO)

The Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) program allows high school 10th, 11th and 12th grade students to earn credits that can meet high school graduation requirements, and at the same time earn transferable college credits. Dual credit courses offer high school students the opportunity to enroll in rigorous courses that further prepare them for postsecondary education. Inver Hills allows PSEO students to take courses that are held on our beautiful campus or online either full-time or part-time. This offers students a wide variety of class offerings as well as the opportunity to pursue more challenging coursework than may be available at the high school.

10th grade PSEO students can now enroll in a career or technical education course during their first semester. If the student receives a grade of C or better in the course, the student shall be allowed to take additional career or technical education courses in subsequent terms.

The PSEO program covers the cost of tuition, fees, and required textbooks and materials for college level courses taken for high school credit. Students that continue their education beyond high school can transfer their PSEO coursework as college credits, saving both time and money to complete a college degree.
