Grade can be downloaded from Firelands website if instructor is using midterm reports. If not, a form must be picked up in the guidance office and given to the instructor to complete.
Points to RememberParticipation in the PSEO Program does not
constitute admission to BGSU or BGSU Firelands. Students who plan to attend the University must formally apply during their senior year.
Students enrolled are subject to same administrative policies, grading policies, and standards as other BGSU students.
BGSU Firelands college students will be given priority over PSEOP students when enrolling in courses.
Certain classes are not available to PSEOP studentsIndependent study, developmental courses (English,
Math), physical ed. Courses, selected business courses, and certain upper-division courses.
Class AttendanceYou are expected to be in class at Firelands if
they are in session. Many professors have very strict attendance policies.They may have different snow days then HHS.They have different spring and fall breaks from HHS.
If you are absent from a Firelands class, it is the student’s responsibility to speak to the instructor and make any necessary arrangements.
Can only leave a high school class 5 minutes early or get back to the high school 5 minutes late so schedule appropriately.
You can not hang out in HHS teachers classrooms on days you do not have class at Firelands.
Sign in and out in officeStay in study hall if you get back to the building
UnderstandYou may miss announcements however:
They are posted online and on the bulletin board outside the main office.
It is your responsibility to take care of conflicts. Final exams in college classes are usually on different days and require you arranging the times in advance with your high school teachers.
Many age groups in college classes—deal with it!
If you fail or withdraw from a college class, you and your parents pay for it ($680+)
You are one of the last to register for classes so selection may be limited.
Credit TransferMany colleges accept the credit. The grade
you get does not go to college with you so it will not help your college gpa.
Way to check out the colleges that accept PSEO credit and the classes they will accept at:https://miami.transfer.org/cas/index.jsp
If class used to meet high school graduation requirements, it may only transfer as a general elective
