High school students interested in the PSEO program must attend a 'PSEO Night', the  information session with your school counselor at their high school or career center.

 

Post-Secondary Enrollment  Options (PSEO)

PSEO Facts:
North Central State's Post Secondary Enrollment Options  (PSEO) program is designed to allow high school students in grades 9 through 12 the opportunity to earn college credit and/or high school graduation credit through successful completion of college courses. 
The purpose of the program is to provide enriched education opportunities to secondary grade students that are beyond the opportunities offered by the high school in which they are involved.

All high school students enrolled in a dual enrollment/dual credit program at North Central State College (Post-Secondary Enrollment Options, Dual Enrollment/ Dual Credit Grant, College NOW, and Seniors to Sophomores) must maintain a 2.0 North Central State College grade point average in order to remain enrolled in that program. In addition, if a student desires to move from one of the above programs to another, he/she must have a current grade point average of at least 2.0 from North Central State College.

PSEO Advantages:
  • PSEO can be completed at NO COST to you!  Tuition, fees and the cost of all REQUIRED class room materials can be funded by the state of Ohio. Two Options are available to you under the PSEO program: Option A - College Credit only (student and parents pay all fees); Option B - High School and college credit (state of Ohio pays tuition, fees, and cost of REQUIRED materials).
  • PSEO students get a "head start" on their college education
  • PSEO students have the opportunity to get a flavor for college before leaving high school
  • PSEO students are exposed to real college classes, real teaching experiences and, oftentimes, transition much better into college upon graduation
  • Credits taken as a PSEO are highly transferable to other colleges and universities


According to the Ohio Department of Education, "if you are a 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade student enrolled in an Ohio public or nonpublic high school, the Post Secondary Enrollment Options program provides an opportunity to take college courses..."

PSEO Steps to Apply:

High school students interested in the PSEO program should attend a 'PSEO Night' information session at their high school/career center or meet with their High School Counselor, prior to submitting the application for PSEO.  Please see your school counselor for more information.  PSEO Night sessions are usually offered during the months of January - March! A representative from North Central State College will be in attendance at many of these session to answer any questions.

1. Attend PSEO Night at High School/Career Center or meet with your High School Counselor.

2. Submit a signed form of intent to your high school by the deadline (typically March 31st).

3.  Complete a PSEO Application for Admission by the posted deadline. 

4.  Submit a copy of your official high school transcripts, and ACT scores if completed.

5.  Complete the college's new student assessment, if necessary.

The completed application, transcripts and test scores, must be submitted to the Admissions Office at North Central State College for review of eligibility requirements by the deadline indicated on the application. This will enable timely processing for entry into the program.

PSEO Entrance Requirements:

1. A high school cumulative GPA of:

  • 2.50 or better for seniors
  • 2.75 or better for juniors
  • 3.50 or better for freshmen or sophomores

2. An ACT assessment score of: 

  • Reading - 18 or better for acceptance and ENGL1010

  • Math - 21 or better for MATH1010/1030/1050

A reading test score below college level requirement will result in the student not qualifying for PSEO at the college.

Further information and details are available on the cover page of the PSEO Application for Admission.

Students that do not meet the ACT requirements, or have not taken the ACT, may take the COMPASS Assessment  to determine eligibility for the program.
