Huskies in the High School (HHS)

St. Cloud State University partners with 40-plus high schools to allow eligible students to earn college credit in their high school classrooms. This program is another dual enrollment option available under the Minnesota PSEO Act, similar to Postsecondary 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 Huskies in the High School 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. 

Huskies in the High School (formerly Senior to Sophomore) earned NACEP Reaccreditation in 2020! See the press release.

Contact Maria Wright, Director of Dual Enrollment, for specific information or to find out how to participate.
