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 while simultaneously earning 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 Inver Grove Heights campus or online either full time or part time. PSEO 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 can 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 who continue their education beyond high school can transfer their PSEO coursework as college credits, saving both time and money to complete a college degree.
PSEO students are responsible for providing their own transportation to campus. Parking is available on campus and you do not need a special permit. Inver Hills is on the Metro Transit bus route and offers the College Pass discount. Reimbursement for transportation expenses may be available through the school district if the family’s income level is at or below the federal poverty guidelines.
Fall Semester: July 1
Spring Semester: December 1
All PSEO applicants must submit their completed application forms AND complete the Accuplacer assessment test (or submit an ACT Report) by the application deadline to be considered for admission.
All new PSEO students are required to attend an orientation before they will be allowed to register for classes, and parents are invited to attend with their son or daughter. You will receive instructions to register for your PSEO orientation along with your acceptance letter. When you come to your orientation, you will learn about important college policies, become acquainted with our campus and available services for students, meet with an Academic Advisor, develop your class schedule, set up your online accounts, and register for your classes. Our PSEO Orientations are held after the application deadline each semester.
