WHAT IS P.S.E.O.?

(Post Secondary Enrollment Option)


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. Schools must provide information to all students in grades 8-11 and their families by March 1, every year. 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, and to see the most current list of PSEO participating colleges,  go to MDE PSEO Page


***At Burnsville High School, students are required to attend a 

mandatory information meeting in order to participate in the 

P.S.E.O. program. Parents are strongly encouraged to also 

attend. This informational meeting is held in February and 

covers what PSEO is, how it works with BHS graduation 

requirements, issues of full or part time, and much, much more. 

 As well, representatives of the most attended colleges for 

P.S.E.O. are there to give more specific information about the 

P.S.E.O. program at their college, and to pick up the P.S.E.O. 

application for that college.


After the mandatory meeting, students must meet with their

Counselor by May 30th of that year to state that they intend to

participate the following fall.



 This year (2016/17), the mandatory PSEO meeting will be held on 

Monday, February 19th at 7pm in the Mraz theater at BHS.


After this meeting, students who want to pursue their PSEO application will meet with their regular Counselor to get the supporting materials, as well as go through a credit evaluation. This can be scheduled through our Counseling secretary, Deb Scherer at 952-707-2108 or at dscherer@isd191.org.

    At this point, you should be getting information to choose semester 2 courses.  Please know you must get a State form from your BHS Counselor to also submit with your semester 2 courses!  This may take only 10,15 minutes , but you still need to schedule the time in to be sure your Counselor is available when you are here.  You should also review your course planning with them to make sure it falls line with BHS graduation plan!  Please call 952-707-2108 to schedule or email Mrs. Ripoll at sripoll@isd191.org to schedule.

    BHS Counselors will be going into 11th grade classes soon to discuss college placement testing, test prep, and planning.  I will try to link this to your 2019 Schoology page after the presentations have been made.  It is very important information - especially relating to ACT testing!!
