Post-Secondary Enrollment Option
The Post-secondary Enrollment Options Program (PSEO) provides Minnesota high school juniors and seniors to take courses, full or part-time, at Pine Technical College. Students earn both high school and college credits concurrently. The application fee, tuition and required textbooks are at no cost to the students!
-- Talk with your high school counselor or home school coordinator to determine if PSEO is a good fit for you.
-- Submit a completed PTC application and the MN Dept. of Education enrollment form to the Admissions office.
-- Have your school counselor or home school coordinator send your high school transcript directly to:
Pine Technical College
900 Fourth St SE
Pine City, MN 55063
-- Contact the Admissions office at 800-521-7463 to schedule an appointment for Assessment Testing and Orientation.
The Accuplacer Assessment Test
Students take the college's assessment test (Accuplacer) and must meet college-level readiness requirements to qualify for PSEO. Students testing into remedial or developmental courses are not eligible for the program.
The test will measure your skills in three areas: reading comprehension, sentence skills and arithmetic. You must test college-ready in both reading comprehension and sentence skills. You may re-test once after a two-week waiting period. There is a $5 charge for re-testing.
If the required scores are not met, college readiness courses must be taken to prepare for college level work. The PSEO program does not cover tuition or textbook costs for the readiness courses.
Courses and Credits
-- Select courses that fulfill courses required for high school graduation and share that schedule with your high school counselor
-- You may enroll in one or more courses but your college credits cannot exceed what is considered full-time in high school
-- If you plan to transfer PSEO credits to another college after high school graduation, contact Jodie Klinkhammer, Student Affairs
Office, or call 320.629.5117, for transfer assistance.
