Post Secondary Enrollment Options

The Post Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) program offers an opportunity for eligible high school juniors and seniors to earn high school and university credit simultaneously. Classes can be taken at the Minnesota State University, Mankato campus or at an off-campus location. If a high school participates in Concurrent Enrollment, the university class is taught in the high school. Tuition and required textbook costs are paid by the Minnesota Department of Education; therefore there is no cost to the PSEO student.

*UPDATED: Fall 2019 PSEO Orientation is scheduled for Friday, August 2nd. Emails have been sent to students and packets will be sent out the week of June 17th. If you do not receive a packet by July 1st please email 

Students not able to attend the August 2nd Orientation should plan on attending a walk-in orientation. Walk-In orientations are scheduled for:

Monday, August 19th in Centennial Student Union Room 201:
