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 online. Tuition and required textbook costs are paid by the Minnesota Department of Education; therefore there is no cost to the PSEO student.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Minnesota State Mankato has developed a website to direct students to online student and academic support tools. Current PSEO students looking for information on tutoring, Library, counseling and other support services can visit www.mnsu.edu/keeplearning.S
