What is PSEO?
PSEO is a program offered through the state of Minnesota where high school juniors and seniors may take college courses that apply to both high school and college graduation. When students graduate from high school, they can possibly have two years of college already completed!
This program is funded by the State of Minnesota, and students are not charged for tuition, books, or registration fees. Northwestern is one of the state’s largest providers of online PSEO courses and now, for selected students, there is an on-campus version of the same courses.
University of Northwestern offers an on-campus PSEO option for those students interested in face-to-face learning. Located on Lake Johanna in the suburban Roseville/Arden Hills area, Northwestern is home to one of the most beautiful campuses in the Midwest.
With the on-campus option, you'll join 1,700 traditional undergraduate students who benefit from small classes, a strong sense of community, and meaningful interaction with professors in and out of the classroom.
