Admission Procedures for Summer High School Enrollment Program

The Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) Program is not available during summer sessions. However, Summer High School Enrollment is available for those high school students in the 11th and 12th grade levels who may wish to take classes during the summer months. This includes PSEO students who may wish to take summer courses.* The Minnesota Department of Education does not fund the courses taken through the Summer High School Enrollment Program; therefore, tuition, fees and books are the student's responsibility.

*PSEO students who are enrolled during the spring semester and who will continue as a PSEO student in the fall semester do not need to re-apply for the Summer High School Enrollment program.

Individuals interested in applying for the Summer High School Enrollment Program should download the application form and the SHEP Parent Acknowledgement form by clicking "Summer High School Enrollment" at or request the general application form from the Normandale Admissions Office at 952-358-8208. They must complete and return the general application form along with the $20 application fee, an official high school transcript, and the SHEP Acknowledgement form that consents to their child/dependent's admission to the program and indicates they accept responsibility for tuition, fees and textbooks. The application deadline for the Summer High School Enrollment Program is May 15.

Summer High School Enrollment applicants must verify their readiness for college-level courses through test scores or Normandale placement testing. Individuals interested in possible waivers from placement testing must submit ACT, SAT, Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), International Baccalaureate (IB), or other scores to the Office of Admissions at the time they apply for admission. (See the Placement Test Waivers section for further information.) Applicants are accepted to the summer program only and are not considered students in the Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) program nor admitted general enrollment students at Normandale Community College.

Summer High School Enrollment students may also be eligible to earn college credits through the Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) program during the fall and spring terms. However, students wishing to participate must apply to this program and meet the eligibility requirements. For more information, refer to the Admission Procedures for PSEO Students.

Students who wish to continue their college education at Normandale after their high school graduation do not need to reapply for general undergraduate admission but must notify the Office of Admissions to update their student status.
