PSEO Application & Paperwork Deadlines

Spring 2024 - December 22nd

Fall 2024 - August 16th

Spring 2025 - December 30th

"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.
