PSEO Registration

Typically, University of Minnesota Morris online courses are limited to 30 students, except writing courses which are limited to 18 students. The courses are all term based, mostly following the University of Minnesota Twin Cities calendar during fall semester and the Morris calendar during spring semester.

Several five-week summer session courses are also offered during Summer Term. The PSEO program does not cover expenses for summer courses, but PSEO students are welcome to take summer courses as nondegree seeking students at their own expense.

Register for Online Courses as a PSEO Student

Students, guidance counselors, home school educators, and parents should read the Online Learning PSEO Student Guide carefully and completely before students register.

The PSEO program permits you to participate in college courses as mandated by state law if you meet the entry requirements of the college program. If your high school administrator or counselor or home school educator has any questions about enrollment in Online Learning through the PSEO program, please refer them to the Online Learning office.

    1. Complete an Online PSEO Application Form for your desired term:
    2. Submit the following required PSEO application documents to the Morris Online Learning office
Official High School Transcript (or home school papers). A form has been provided for you to use to request that your high school transcript be sent to the Online Learning office from your high school. Home schooled students must submit their home school transcript or papers.
PSEO Notice of Student Registration Form This form must be signed by you, your high school counselor or home school educator, and a parent/guardian if you are under 18 years old. Mail or fax the signed form to the Morris Online Learning office.

You will not be formally registered and enrolled until all properly completed documents are received and your registration is approved by the Online Learning Program Coordinator. The Morris Online Learning staff will process your registration and send you a registration confirmation letter along with student identification information via the United States Postal Service.

The Morris Online Learning office will send your high school counselor confirmation of your enrollment and a link to the Online Learning PSEO Student Guide once you are registered for your course. We will also notify the Minnesota State Department of Education of PSEO registrations after 10 class days of campus instruction.

Once your registration is finalized and about a week before your course begins, you will receive your textbook(s) and a welcome email for your course. Please be aware that all books used during your enrollment in the PSEO program belong to the University of Minnesota Morris. If you drop or withdraw from a course, you will be expected to return your books to the UMN Morris bookstore. You will be billed for any books not returned to the Morris campus at the completion of your online course.

Any cancellation must be submitted in writing and cannot be made over the telephone. PSEO students who wish to cancel a Morris Online Learning course must formally drop or withdraw by emailing the Morris Online Learning office using their University email account.
