Your co-op is a College Classroom


Crown offers this dynamic PSEO program to qualified students at CHAT. This program permits students to earn college credit for free while still in high school. Courses have a low student-to-instructor ratio for an optimal learning experience.

Students from CHAT can take classes in a hybrid format in which Crown’s online instructor partners with a Course Assistant from CHAT.  Course assistants, who are selected by CHAT and approved by Crown, lead weekly 1.5 hours face-to-face in which they guide students through course activities provided by the instructor. These sessions provide tutoring assistance and supplemental instruction to students.  Major assignments are graded by Crown’s course instructor.  This option gives students the opportunity to get support from a familiar homeschool Course Assistant while taking a high-quality online course under the guidance of a credentialed faculty member from Crown. 

All PSEO students are supported by a dedicated PSEO academic advisor. The tuition and books are free for Minnesota students.

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. An official homeschool transcript includes classes, grades, cumulative GPA, expected graduation date, and a parent signature and is mailed in a sealed envelope or emailed from a 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 coursework.


Most of the books will be available to pick up at your meeting location.  Online books may need to be ordered through the Crown Bookstore. MN PSEO students will receive a book voucher to order textbooks and then books must be returned to Crown at the end of the semester. 

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.
