    Post-Secondary Enrollment Option (PSEO)

    If you have taken classes at a Minnesota college through the PSEO program, please contact the admission office to see how they transfer. 

    Students participating in the PSEO program are still considered first-year students. If they have completed an A.A. or A.S. degree through the PSEO program, each class is reviewed for transfer credit independent of any degree.

    Call the Office of Undergraduate Admission at 651-523-2207 or 1-800-753-9753 or email admission@hamline.edu if you have any questions about transferring credits.

    Go to TES (Transfer Evaluation System) to look up your preexisting credits.
