Minnesota students can get a jump start on earning college credits by taking college courses while they are in still in high school through 明尼苏达州’s PSEO 程序. This 程序ming is made possible through the 明尼苏达州公共服务法案. College courses taken through PSEO 程序ming are dual credit; courses should fulfill high school course requirements and count toward a high school diploma. In addition to earning credits, these rigorous courses offer students help in learning important “transition skills," such as critical thinking, 写作, research and course management. These skills help students make a successful transition to college. Additional information can be found on the Minnesota Department of Education website.

We find many students are ready to begin their college careers on campus or in an online environment, while still in high school. Students should be prepared for the academic and social challenges of enrolling in college and earning credits before high school graduation. We pride ourselves on being able to offer courses that exceed high school levels, introduce students to new disciplines, and create opportunities for students to engage in the full college experience.

10th grade students who are interested in taking career and technical courses may start by taking one career and technical college level course taught by a college faculty member on a college campus, at their high school or online as early as 10th grade. St. 云州 University has designated specific courses that a 10th grade student may choose from. To be eligible to do so, a student must have a minimum of a “proficient” score on the 8th grade Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment (MCA) test for reading and meet the assessment prerequisites set for the course that must be met by all students. 了解我们的 PSEO admission criteria，下载 应用程序 and begin the process of becoming a PSEO student!
Many high schools offer college courses through concurrent enrollment 程序ming, allowing students to take college courses taught by highly qualified high school teachers without having to leave the high school. Under certain circumstances, students in 9th or 10th grade may also be allowed to take concurrent enrollment courses.
We refer to this 程序 as "Huskies in the High School." Students enrolled in this 程序 are St. 云州 Huskies taking St. 云州 University courses at their high school.
Students interesting in Huskies in the High School should consult their high school guidance counselor to learn about the courses offered at their high school. Program details and eligibility standards are available through our Huskies in the High School website.
请注意: High schools students must be formally admitted each PSEO 程序 they intend to register through. Students who are admitted to another institution or through another affiliation, and register for St. 云州 University courses through that affiliation are not automatically admitted to or receive the benefits of our 程序.
