Early postsecondary opportunities (EPSOs)

Early postsecondary opportunities (EPSOs) 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 higher education standards. Early postsecondary opportunities ensure that students are ready to take advantage of education and training after high school.
