PSEO On-Campus




Why On-Campus PSEO at Crown College?

The Postsecondary Enrollment Option (PSEO) is a state-funded program that allows high school juniors and seniors to complete high school requirements at the college level. Crown’s PSEO Program provides a quality and convenient way for academically advanced high school students to meet their high school requirements and get a head start on a college education, supported by a Christ-centered community. 

Students who want a traditional college experience can apply to our on-campus programs.  


Commuter Program:

For Minnesota high school juniors or seniors who have earned a minimum of a 3.25 GPA. Many students in this program enroll part-time, so the challenge of balancing high school and PSEO commitments at Crown needs to be considered. Students must provide their own transportation.


Residential Program:

PSEO students who are at least 17 years old and meet the on-campus entrance requirements may live on Crown’s campus.  They live in the dorms, participate in student life and take classes much like regular freshmen. (Please note: Room and board is not covered by the State of Minnesota and is the responsibility of the student.)


Our PSEO program has two options: Crown Connect (on-campus PSEO-specific classes) and Crown Select (regular on-campus classes).
