Post-Secondary Enrollment Option Program (PSEOP)

What is PSEOP?

The Post-secondary Enrollment Options program (PSEOP) at Kent State University is designed to provide qualified public high school students with the opportunity to enhance their high school education with a true college experience.

The PSEOP program is not intended to replace coursework available in high school, or to provide high school students with a full-time college course load.

Students accepted into the PSEOP program typically select courses from Kent State University's Kent Core Requirements. See "Kent Core Requirements" to view this list of courses.

Registration for PSEOP students will take place after pre-registration for Kent State students.  Be advised that course availability could be limited.  PSEOP students should come prepared with several course options when meeting with their PSEOP Advisor.

The PSEOP program has two options for students to choose from:


Option A

Under this option, the student is responsible for paying the entire cost of the program directly to Kent State University. The student chooses to receive both high school and college credit, or only college credit. If the student chooses college credit only, the grade for the course is not factored into the high school grade point average.


Option B

By selecting Option B, high school students may earn both high school and college credit without paying tuition. Under Option B, students may also borrow required textbooks and course materials at no charge. Some exceptions may apply. Admitted Option A and Option B PSEOP students will be considered Kent State University students and are accountable for all policies, rules, procedures and deadlines in effect for students of Kent State University. These include items related to tuition payments, textbooks, advising, and registration. Students are expected to be familiar with PSEOP Student Handbook, as well as the information in the Schedule of Classes and Undergraduate Catalog.
