Early Post-Secondary Opportunities

Early Postsecondary Opportunities (EPSO's) include a course and/or exam that give students a chance to obtain postsecondary credit while still in high school. Courses, whether stand-alone or in conjunction with an exam for postsecondary credit, must be aligned to postsecondary standards.

Early Postsecondary Opportunities allow students to:

  • earn postsecondary credits while in high school

  • become familiar with postsecondary rigor and expectations

  • develop confidence and skills for success in postsecondary learning

  • make informed postsecondary and career decisions

  • decrease the time and cost of completing a certificate or degree
