College Class Options
Crookston High School offers college credit through three different options:
1. College in the High School (CIHS)
2. Post-Secondary Enrollment Option (PSEO)

1. College In the High School
CIHS Program Mission is for students to earn college and high school credit simultaneously, in the high school setting, while transitioning into a post-secondary mindset. Students learn time management, practice independent and critical thinking skills, shoulder a new levels of accountability, all while learning rigorous content.
The College in the High School program is a dual enrollment partnership between Crookston High School and the University of Minnesota Crookston.
 2. Postsecondary Enrollment Option (PSEO)
Taking PSEO courses comes with a lot of responsibility. You are a college student, needing to communicate with your professor, keeping up with your assignments and grades.
CHS can not communicate with your professors; therefore PSEO is 100% student responsibility.
PSEO students should stay connected to CHS for any announcements etc. Students are able to take PSEO courses at a MN post-secondary institution offering PSEO classes if the student is at a Sophomore (limited options), Junior or Senior status, and meets admissions requirements of the institution.
These courses are taken at the post-secondary institution of choice, and the courses are dual credit (counting toward High School diploma and College degree). CHS students do not pay tuition and fees. They are responsible for their own transportation. Classes offered is dependent on the institutions PSEO courses offered. Students must work closely with the school counselor to ensure high school graduation requirements are also met. Since PSEO is student responsibility, any failed PSEO classes could jeopardize graduation status.
*In order to register for PSEO courses you must notify CHS of intent to participate in the PSEO program prior to May 31st each school year.
