PSEO Procedure
2019-2020 School Year 

PLEASE NOTE: DEADLINE to inform FHS about your intent to take PSEO classes is May 30, 2019 for the entire 2019-2020 school year. State forms will not be signed after May 30, 2019.

Choosing to Participate

The decision to participate in PSEO is an important one, and students should start planning early. The student will be expected to be a responsible, self-starting independent learner.

Students and parents should consider the following:

  • High School Graduation Requirements: Students should meet with their high school guidance counselor and review the courses needed to graduate. Enrollment in an incorrect PSEO class could result in delayed high school graduation, so careful planning and communication with the high school is very important. The high school should allow students flexibility in choosing generally comparable courses to meet requirements.

  • Academic Ability: Is the student ready for college-level course work? (General guidelines: Juniors a 3.5 GPA and above and seniors a 3.0 GPA and above. Students should also be in the 50th percentile or higher on standardized tests).

  • Maturity: Is the student mature, responsible and self-disciplined enough to be successful in a college setting?

  • Scheduling and Transportation: Will the student be able to manage schedules at two locations and have the transportation means to get to each location?

  • Be aware of postsecondary admissions requirements and deadlines. It is the postsecondary institution that determines admissions requirements into their postsecondary courses – not the high school. Postsecondary institutions also set their own application deadlines and timelines for admission.

  • Decide where to enroll – and which courses to take. There is no list of available PSEO courses available across the state. Students should locate the list of PSEO courses offered by the postsecondary institution where they would like to enroll.
