PSEO Research & Data

The Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) program helps Minnesota students save $60 million in college costs on an annual basis. Additionally, it effectively addresses several of Minnesota’s most critical educational issues: gaps in socioeconomic access to higher education, high school graduation rates, college graduation rates, and college debt.

In addition to solving issues for students, the program is also great for the state. Research by the Minnesota State Auditor found that more than half of high school principals felt PSEO increased collaboration between high schools and colleges. School district leaders acknowledge that PSEO encourages high schools to offer more opportunities for dual credit courses on their campuses. To better understand the barriers that prevent students from participating in the PSEO program, we conduct and compile research in an attempt to identify actionable changes that can be made by stakeholders and policymakers.
