Families should learn more about PSEO program

March 23, 2013
The Marietta Times

One of the strengths of the Ohio education system is the Post-Secondary Education Options (PSEO). PSEO lets a high school student enroll in college-level courses and complete those courses at the college-sometimes online. PSEO students can carry a full-time load at Washington State Community College (WSCC) and after two years of course work graduate, concurrently, with a high school diploma and an associate degree. This is a tremendous savings in time and money. Some PSEO students choose to enroll part-time in WSCC courses to explore a career path or earn transferable general education courses. They can then go on to attend a four-year college or university or enter the workforce as a college graduate or transfer student. WSCC enrolls between 250-300 PSEO students each semester. This year WSCC will recognize 40 graduating PSEO students with an associate degree in liberal arts transfer. Some are earning their first college degree at age 17 or 18! Their commitment to reaching this goal is commendable.
