Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) is an opportunity that allows high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors to take courses at Northland Community and Technical College to earn both college and high school credit.
Eligible Minnesota high school sophomores, juniors or seniors may enroll in course work through NCTC as part of the student's full-time high school enrollment.
NCTC will evaluate student eligibility, admit students to the College on a provisional basis, register students for courses on a space available basis, inform the student of the support services available at the College, and monitor satisfactory academic progress. Participation in this program requires the approval of the parent or legal guardian and the College. Continued participation requires satisfactory academic progress. The PSEO program will cover the cost of tuition, fees and books for eligible courses. This program is not available for students enrolling for Summer Session.
NCTC will offer PSEO students only courses that have been approved by NCTC's Academic Affairs Council. Developmental courses are not covered by the PSEO program. Courses delivered as part of the PSEO program must meet Minnesota State and NCTC academic policies and standards. Prior to registering for classes, students are required to take the college assessment. After completion of the assessment, students may register by meeting with their high school counselor or an NCTC academic advisor.
To participate in the PSEO program, students must inform their school district by May 30th of each year of the student’s intent to enroll in any post-secondary courses during the following school year.
The College President or designee must approve any deviation from this practice.Apply Now »
