Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) Program

Post Secondary Education Option Program (PSEO) was created by the State of Ohio to provide an opportunity to earn both high school and college credit at the same time. This program is funded through the Ohio Department of Education. Students who wish to participate in this program must notify their respective high schools by the March 30 deadline to ensure funding. Students who attend a non-public school must apply for special funding following “08” guidelines.

Students who attend a school other than the ones listed as Dual Enrollment partners must apply under the PSEO program. This program includes two options:

Option A: the student is responsible for all costs of the program and may receive college credit only.

Option B: the student is responsible only for the $85.00 application fee and the $30.00 maintenance and security fee.  If the student withdraws or fails a course, the school may charge the student.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Permission of the high school counselor or principal
  • Permission of parent or legal guardian
  • College level scores on the ACT, SAT, or COMPASS pre-admission test
  • B average in high school subject in order to take college course in that area
