Admissions: Post-Secondary Enrollment Options
Red Lake Nation College offers high school sophomores, juniors and seniors access to college level courses through the Postsecondary Enrollment Option (PSEO) program. Students who rank in the upper 25% of their graduating class are eligible to enroll in 100 level courses to meet their high school graduation requirements, often starting with FYEX 1100 First Year Experience. Sophomores may only enroll in career or technical education courses. The PSEO program covers the cost of tuition, fees and books. PSEO students cannot take developmental courses (numbered below 100).
In order to be admitted as a PSEO student, students must determine eligibility for admission by consulting with their high school counselor. If the student is eligible, the application includes the following:
High School Transcript
Minnesota Department of Education [MDE] PSEO Notice of Student Registration Form
Tribal Enrollment/Verification Form, if applicable (Tribal enrollment card or certification letter acceptable)
Accuplacer Placement Test and RLNC Technology test to determine appropriate sequence of classes
Vaccination/Immunization Record (if applicable)
It is best to visit with one’s high school counselor to find out exactly how many credits are needed at the College to meet high school requirements for graduation. PSEO students are allowed to take only six (6) semester credits per term at RLNC. The Vice President of Operations and Academic Affairs, the high school counselor and/or principal must approve any requests for a heavier credit-load.
