Post-Secondary Enrollment Option

Through Ashland’s Post-Secondary Enrollment Options program (PSEOP), high school students with strong academic records can earn college credit and/or high school graduation credit by taking college courses. It’s a great way to get a head start on your college education.

Here’s what it takes to participate:

  1. You must have participated in a college preparatory curriculum and completed the following:
  • Two or more years of high school English
  • Two or more units of math (algebra or higher)
  • Two or more units of science (one must be a laboratory science)
  • Two or more units of social studies
  1. You must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.00 on a 4.00 scale at the time you apply.
  2. You must have a composite score of 21 or higher on the ACT or 980 (CR/M) total score on the SAT. (Sub-scores will be used to obtain the best overall composite or total if you’ve taken the ACT or SAT more than once.)
  3. Your application must be postmarked no later than July 1 for the fall semester and no later than December 8 for spring semester. You must submit a separate application for each semester.
  4. You can only enroll in those courses posted for PSEOP students. Enrollment depends on the availability of these courses.
  5. You may not register for classes before August 1 for fall semester and December 1 for spring semester.

All of the above criteria are considered in admitting you into the Post Secondary Enrollment Program at Ashland University. Admission is not guaranteed, and admission does not guarantee course availability. You will be notified of your enrollment status.

Credit and Cost
You have two options in the type of credit you receive and the cost of the credit:

Option A — Choose to receive post-secondary (college) credit only. If you choose this option, you will be required to pay the cost of tuition, textbooks, materials and fees.

Option B — Choose to receive post-secondary (college) and secondary (high school) credit. In this case, the cost of tuition, textbooks, materials and fees are covered for you.
