2019 Minnesota Statute Description

124D.09. The Minnesota Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) Act (124D.09) allows qualified high school juniors and seniors to enroll in postsecondary courses for dual college and high school credit. The law mandates that post-secondary institutions allow selected high school students to enroll in their on-campus courses, as space allows. The law also allows schools and districts to contract with postsecondary institutions to provide postsecondary courses on-site at high schools.

The 2011 legislature amended 124D.09 to allow 9th and 10th graders to apply to participate in courses offered through concurrent enrollment programs under very narrow circumstances, namely that the class in which they enroll would not be offered unless additional students are enrolled. This legislation does not change the postsecondary institutions’ ability to determine eligibility requirements. Go here to read the entire law here.

Amended in 2012, this statute now requires MDE to report annually to the legislature about not only the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs, but also on the traditional PSEO program and concurrent enrollment (120B.13)

This statute provides a prorated reimbursement to high schools of up to $150 per student registration, capped at $4 million, for costs incurred when offering concurrent enrollment courses (124D.091).
