Senior to Sophomore

St. Cloud State University partners with 30-plus high schools to allow eligible students to earn college credit in their high school classrooms.

Some students earn enough credits to begin their first year of college as a sophomore. We are an alternative to the on-campus Post-Secondary Enrollment Option Program.

We pair a highly trained high school teacher with a university faculty member who ensures the rigor and integrity of the course.

Our Senior to Sophomore students learn college-level skills in critical thinking, writing, research and course management that help the transition to college. They also:

  • earn college credits while meeting high school graduation requirements.
  • enroll in classes right on their high school campus and avoid competing for space in classes.
  • have more opportunity to select advanced courses.
  • have access to the university's academic advisors, library, email and internet.
  • may be able to graduate from college sooner. 

  Contact Susan Jordahl, interim program director, for specific information or to find out how to participate.
