PSEO is a program open to Minnesota’s high school juniors and seniors, allowing them to take college courses while they are in high school, at no additional cost to the student. SWCHS students may take courses part-time at a nearby college or university or through distance learning if they meet the admission requirements of the school to which they are applying and if their classes at SWCHS can be worked out to accommodate their off-campus schedule.
Things to consider about online courses:
- Online students must be self-motivated and mature as they will be solely responsible for their learning.
- While the format of the online classes is flexible, students should expect to have nightly and/or weekly homework, tests, projects, or papers. Students must be disciplined to follow the designed scope and sequence of the course in order to be successful.
- Each partnering institution has different policies for the completion of online work, grading, tests, late work, and other educational practices with which students must comply.
- While SWCHS will facilitate enrollment into these courses and recognize this coursework on a student’s transcript, the student and parents will primarily be dealing with the online instructor and partnering institution primarily via email.
