PSEO--Post-Secondary Enrollment Options
• A high school student attends a MN State college or University
• The student then receives both high school and college credit if they pass the course
• PSEO provides:
o More variety of courses
o College credit at no charge
When choosing courses, students must consider what courses are needed to meet Hmong College Prep Academy graduation requirements. In addition, students should consider courses that are offered beyond those available at HCPA. Students may earn college credit at HCPA by taking Advanced Placement
and College in the Schools
courses. Students should work with counselors to ensure the best possible graduation results.
All PSEO students are required to maintain full time / part time credit status. These credits may be taken entirely at the college or a combination of college and high school credits. ** Full time is defined as the equivalent of at least 12 college credits per semester at the college. The ability to transfer PSEO credits from one college to another depends on each individual college or university. Students should contact the colleges or universities they are considering attending after high school graduation to determine what PSEO credits, if any, the institutions will accept as a transfer and how they will treat those credits. Will those credits replace courses required by that institution, will they transfer as elective credits, or will none of those credits earned transfer?
Students who are socially, emotionally and academically ready should contact the counseling department for more information.
Students must sign a contract through the counseling office and are required to meet with their high school counselor and CP teacher monthly. These meetings will help ensure they are on track to graduate and getting assistance with college applications.
