Through Bethel's PSEO program, you can get a jump start on your college degree while completing your high school requirements—all free of charge. Our online and on-campus program options make courses accessible to Minnesota students near and far.

All students who meet our academic qualifications are welcome to participate in the PSEO program at Bethel. While Bethel has a faith requirement for our traditional undergraduate students due to the unique nature of the residential and faith formation experience, we do not require faith statements from PSEO students as part of the application process.
