PSEO Application

PSEO Application Process

Eligible Minnesota high school sophomores, juniors, or seniors may enroll in coursework through Northland as part of the student’s full-time high school enrollment.

Northland 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 Post-Secondary Enrollment Option (PSEO) program will cover the cost of tuition, fees, and course-required textbooks, materials, and equipment for eligible courses. This program is not available for students enrolling for Summer Session.

PSEO Application Deadlines

Northland will offer PSEO students only courses that Northland’s Academic Affairs Council has approved. The PSEO program does not cover developmental courses. Courses delivered as part of the PSEO program must meet Minnesota State and Northland 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 a Northland academic advisor.

To participate in the PSEO program, students must inform their school district by May 30 of each year of the student’s intent to enroll in any post-secondary courses during the following school year.

PSEO students are subject to all policies and procedures of the college and are expected to follow the college calendar as to important dates and deadlines.

The College President or designee must approve any deviation from this practice.
