Refer to first few pages of the PSEO bound booklet
Your hs counselors usually speak with you and you can scan the catalog to find courses that meet hs requirements and that interest you.
An advisor can help you choose a section that will meet your free time from high school or activities, but it helps if you plan your schedule a bit before you come in. You can find the pdf of the schedules on the home page for LCCC.
These are the only courses that PSEO cannot take. ALHN are allied health courses and have an age requirement. All clinical courses have age requirements and background checks etc… EDCT and ECED are education courses with age requirements EMSB and EMSP are paramedic courses PEFT is individualized fitness course.
Talk about TAG courses (electives) USelect
Refer to book agreement that they sign.
Students can get college IDs at all of the outreach centers as well. However, they will need to pick them up on a subsequent day after having picture taken.
High school site courses follow the high schools’ calendar. Spring break is ALWAYS different. LCCC may start earlier or be dismissed earlier than your HS. Talk about snow days….
Get tutoring before you fall behind. The best students utilize the tutoring center. Also, hs site students are encouraged to access this free service as well.
You can also add courses or change sections before the term starts. Schedule adjustments (drops) are not the same as withdrawals. They do not show on transcripts at all.
Your LCCC advisor may ask you to take a blue form to your counselor in order to make sure they are aware of a drop if it is required for graduation. This depends.
A withdrawal is more serious.
Even though Withdrawals won’t affect the GPA like an F would, they can still affect whether or not a student can graduate.
How the points are factored into the High school GPA is up to the district. Some schools weight pseo courses, some do not. You will need to have an official college transcript sent to each college you apply to as well as the hs transcript even though the college courses are on your HS transcript. This is free to do.

Schedule Adjustment vs. Withdrawal? Schedule adjustments can be done anytime before the term begins without a charge. Adjustments can also be made after the term starts but must be done before the schedule adjustment period ends. Courses that are “dropped” will not appear on your transcript.
Schedule Adjustments (cont.) Once a class starts, you will not be dropped at full refund and may have to pay your district for the lost funds. Schedule adjustments can be processed after you meet with an advisor. You should notify your High School counselor of any changes.
Withdrawals Changing a course selection after the adjustment period is considered a withdrawal and will appear as a “W” on your transcript but isn’t computed into GPA. Withdrawals require additional paperwork and you must meet with your high school counselor and an LCCC academic advisor. You will be asked to pay your district back for the entire cost of the course.
Make It Official! There is a limited time to withdraw from a course – (until the 12th week of a 16 week semester). Check the catalog calendar! Complete a PSEO “Withdrawal Notice Form” at your high school with your counselor. Next, bring that form to LCCC and process an LCCC withdrawal with an academic advisor.
Caution! Do not stop attending without officially withdrawing – You will receive an “F” grade. An “F” grade is calculated into your Grade Point Average, while a “W” is a non- punitive grade and isn’t calculated into GPA.
Caution! Both “F” and “W” grades may affect your high school graduation! You will have to pay your district back for an “F” or “W”. Talk to your high school counselor and LCCC advisor before you make a decision!
