Are you an academic high achiever?
Would you like to cut the length and cost of your college education?
The Postsecondary Enrollment Options Program (PSEOP) was created by the Ohio Legislature to allow students to enroll in a college or university to earn both college and high school credit.
Advantages for college-level learning during high school
PSEOP pays the following for students receiving dual high school/college credit
For students attending a district surrounding The University of Akron, an additional approach is available. Postsecondary distance-learning classes allow the student to enjoy the best of what high school has to offer, while providing a virtual campus collaboration linking multiple school districts.
Distance Learning Classrooms are linked with interactive, multimedia technology and are equipped with state-of-the-art instructional equipment. Therefore, instructors teaching from these classrooms have all types of instructional media at their disposal. Instructors also have the ability to view multiple remote classrooms at a time.
Always remember to state that you are a PSEOP student when you speak with any UA department.
You must meet with your adviser for any schedule changes and to register for each semester: Center for Academic Advising and Student Success
Books must be returned by the end of exam week each semester.
Student enrolled in the Postsecondary Enrollment Options Program must reapply through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions during their senior year of high school to be considered for admission as a new freshman.
To reapply as a new freshman please submit the following credentials:
Transfer of credits to another institution
All subsequent colleges/universities will require an official copy of your UA transcript when you apply. You may request a transcript through My Akron or by submitting a request form to the Office of Registrar.
Failure to disclose that you have attended The University of Akron could be considered as falsification of your record, and a college/university could deny you admission.
Each college/university establishes their own policy for the transfer of credits. However, all state universities and community colleges in Ohio have established articulation agreements which assure the transfer of credits.
You can visit the "U. Select" website at www.transfer.org to investigate how your credits may transfer to other institutions. In addition, you should call any institutions you are considering for clarification on their transfer policies.
