Application Information & Deadlines

Minneapolis Public Schools information about Post Secondary Enrollment Options can be found here.

All Students interested in PSEO should follow the process below.  


The first step is to meet with your counselor well before your expected enrollment.

  1. Students discuss PSEO plans with high school counselor.
  2. The school counselor will need to sign the planning sheet and state form for PSEO.
  3. Students then apply directly to the individual school.
  4. Students should remember that they must meet high school graduation requirements.


Programs or courses will be regular Post-Secondary offerings and students will be expected to successfully complete the same work as their Post-Secondary "peers." Courses completed under PSEO become part of the student’s permanent record and are used in determining grade point average and class rank.
