The Post-Secondary Enrollment Options Program (PSEO) allows 10th, 11th and 12th grade students to attend a college or technical college, either full or part-time, at no cost to the student. PSEO is designed to promote rigorous educational pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options for students.

For additional information pertaining to qualifications, high school graduation requirements, and how to apply see the High School Administrator. You may also contact the Post-Secondary Enrollments Options Program at (612) 626-1666.

Students who elect to enroll in a college credit correspondence course under the Post-Secondary Enrollments Options program may have a reduction in the number of courses they are enrolled in a Lake of the Woods. Credits will be awarded on the following basis: 3 college semester credits equals .75 high school credits. All grades earned under the PSEO program will be included in the student’s grade point average. Seniors must complete all correspondence courses by May to have those grades included in the final GPA. Credits will count toward graduation if an official college transcript is received by the Wednesday before graduation.
