Concurrent Enrollment (College In the Schools)
To be eligible for concurrent enrollment courses at DGF, students are required to take the Accuplacer test. To be eligible to take the Accuplacer test, sophomores must have a 3.2 GPA and juniors must have a 2.8 GPA. MState has specific score requirements to enroll in the concurrent courses offered at DGF.
The Accuplacer is a Web-based assessment that evaluates academic abilities in reading, writing, and mathematics. The Accuplacer is not a pass/fail test and does not have a time limit. Mrs. Kjos will administer the Accuplacer in the spring. The 2016 dates the Accuplacer will be offered are March 29th - April 1st.
This is a list of the MState courses offered at DGF High School along with the local college transfer equivalencies.
Post Secondary Enrollment (classes on a college campus)
Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) is a program that allows 10th-, 11th- and 12th-grade students to earn both high school and college credit while still in high school, through enrollment in and successful completion of college-level, nonsectarian courses at eligible participating postsecondary institutions. Most PSEO courses are offered on the campus of the postsecondary institution; some courses are offered online. Each participating college or university sets its own requirements for enrollment into the PSEO courses. Eleventh and 12th-grade students may take PSEO courses on a full- or part-time basis; 10th graders may take one career/technical PSEO course. If they earn at least a grade C in that class, they may take additional PSEO courses.
There is no charge to PSEO students for tuition, books or fees for items that are required to participate in a course. Students must meet the PSEO residency and eligibility requirements and abide by participation limits specified in Minnesota Statutes, section 124D.09. Funds are available to help pay transportation expenses for qualifying students to participate in PSEO courses on college campuses. Schools must provide information to all students in grades 8-11 and their families by March 1, every year. Students must notify their school by May 30 if they want to participate in PSEO for the following school year. For current information about the PSEO program, visit the Minnesota Department of Education’s Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) webpage.
College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)
The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a College Board program that allows students to accelerate their education by earning college credit by taking a computer-based test of their knowledge. Learning can be done through general academic instruction, independent study, extracurricular work or volunteerism. The time and money saved can be significant. Check with the postsecondary institution of your choice for their most recent CLEP credit policy. Visit the College Board website for more information.
