Step 1: Review options
The On-Campus Post Secondary Enrollment Option (PSEO) program allows high school juniors and seniors in Minnesota high schools and home school students to enroll in college level courses and receive both high school and college credit. It is also available to 10th graders who meet the criteria to enroll in specific Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses.
Lake Superior College also offers two programs that allows high school juniors and seniors to earn college credit at their high school. They are available to sophomores on a limited basis.
Concurrent Enrollment classes are offered through a participating high school and taught by a credentialed high school teacher. LSC partners with 22 area high schools offering over 150 concurrent enrollment courses for college credit.
Honors Online courses are offered online by the college, taught by college instructors, but taken via the Internet at the high school campus. This allows students to enroll in college classes and stay at the high school campus. LSC partners with 14 area high schools to offer honors online courses to over 200 students each semester.
Contact your high school counselor to see if your high school participates in one of these programs.
