About the Program


For Minnesota high school juniors or seniors who have earned a minimum of a 3.0 GPA and want to get a head start on their education. Students in this program are in online asynchronous classes with other PSEO students in dynamic virtual classrooms.  The classroom is available to students 24-7 and most classes have no set meeting time.

Along with free tuition and class fees, PSEO students receive free textbooks from Crown. This puts students in a position of financial success in their academic pursuits. Information about obtaining books will be emailed prior to the start of the semester.

Our PSEO program is a great way for high school students to transition into college. They are encouraged to apply to Crown College — on-campus or online — after they graduate high school.

Our off-campus PSEO options, including our online, high school hybrid, and homeschool hybrid options do not require a faith statement and will not be affected by the pending PSEO legislation.

Here are common questions and their answers

Standardized test results are not required for PSEO or Dual Enrollment students.

The official high school transcript comes to Crown directly from the high school in a sealed envelope or through an electronic transcript service. An official homeschool transcript includes classes, grades, cumulative GPA, expected graduation year, and a parent signature and is mailed in a sealed envelope or emailed from the parent’s email.

Crown is regionally accredited so credits should transfer elsewhere, but ultimately it’s up to the other college to decide what will transfer. See Transferology for assistance planning your coursework.


The MDE Notice of PSEO Notice of Student Registration form must be completed each semester by the student, parent, high school counselor, and Crown College to be submitted to the MN Department of Education for payment.

This form indicates what classes are required for you to earn your high school diploma. Completing your high school graduation requirements is a priority for the PSEO program.
