Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO)
PSEO and Dual Enrollment Program
Minnesota high school juniors and seniors can complete high school requirements and earn free college credits by taking courses at Concordia College through our Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) program. PSEO encourages rigorous educational pursuits and provides a wider variety of course options to high school students. For Minnesota residents admitted to the PSEO program, the state of Minnesota and Concordia College cover tuition, books, and standard fees.
Concordia also has a dual enrollment agreement with Park Christian School in Moorhead and Oak Grove Lutheran School in Fargo, N.D., which allows North Dakota residents attending Oak Grove to participate in part-time PSEO. Students admitted to our dual enrollment program are allowed to take one course per semester at a cost and are responsible for paying for their course materials and books. *Please complete a separate form if coming from Park Christian or Oak Grove High School by requesting this via email to the Office of Admission (email@example.com) or simply apply and an admission rep will forward it to you.
