New PSEO Students - Getting Started!

Meet with your high school counselor and complete each of the following:

  1. Apply Online for admission to Riverland if you have not already done so. There is no cost to apply!
  2. Notice of Student Registration Form
    *Students need to submit two copies of this form at time of application, one for Fall semester and one for Spring semester.
  3. PSEO Student Planning Guide *This form is required to continue with the registration process. The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) requires that all PSEO courses go towards fulfilling unmet high school graduation requirements. This form is what is used to help avoid any financial costs to the PSEO student for enrollment in a course(s) that MDE may not financially cover.
  4. Have your High School submit a copy of your transcript and assessment scores to Riverland's PSEO Coordinator below.
  5. Submit all completed paperwork to Riverland via mail or email. Please email paperwork to: 
              Riverland Community College
                           Attn: Chelsea Petersen 
                           1900 8th Ave NW
                           Austin, MN 55912 

Riverland will email each student with additional instructions detailing the process of enrollment once these essential forms are received.

PSEO Paperwork Deadlines

Fall Semesters - Priority Deadline May 30

                             Final Deadline June 30

Spring Semesters - Priority Deadline October 30

                                   Final Deadline November 30

"PSEO Paperwork" includes the completion and submission of all the above steps by the posted deadlines. All paperwork postmarked after the final deadlines will not receive priority registration and therefore have limited course options for that semester. Students who miss the final deadline will only be allowed to attend a PSEO Registration Session held in the first few weeks prior to start of Fall and Spring semesters. 

*Riverland Community College reserves the right to not allow a high school student to register for classes if not college ready.
