Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO)

Complete information from MDE's website on PSEO.

Counselors hold an informational meeting annually for any interested student. This meeting takes place during the school day, typically during the registration process for selection of the next year's classes (January or February). 


After the informational meeting, students serious about applying for PSEO should set up a parent/guardian meeting with their School Counselor.  These meetings typically take place in the spring of the year (March or April).  Students are responsible for researching the college of their choosing, and knowing deadlines for PSEO application.
