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.
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.
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).
