New State Statute and Policy for 9th and 10th graders

  • A high school that wishes to have a college or university offer a PSEO concurrent enrollment course to its students, but cannot generate sufficient enrollment to offer that course only to 11th and 12th grade students who meet the PSEO eligibility requirements of Part 2, Subpart A, may:

  • 1. Permit 9th or 10th grade students who rank in the upper one-tenth of their class or attain a score at or above the 90th percentile on a nationally standardized, norm-referenced test to enroll in that course; or

  • 2. Request approval for an exception from the president of the college or university to allow non-PSEO students to enroll in that course. The president of the college or university shall approve or deny the request after the appropriate college or university consultation process. In any concurrent enrollment course that enrolls both PSEO and non-PSEO students:

  • PSEO students shall be the majority of the students in the course; and

  • The concurrent enrollment instructor and college or university faculty member shall ensure that all PSEO students are held to college-level course standards.
