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 of $100 and are responsible for paying for their course materials.
In addition, please be aware that as a PSEO student, the Student Vaccination Requirement pertains to you. All students at Concordia College are required to be fully vaccinated by the beginning of the Spring 2022 semester, unless they have a college approved exemption. Exemption requests must be submitted no later than Monday, Nov. 1, 2021.
