GPA & Transcripts
The student’s grades from PSEO coursework will appear on high school transcripts. The PSEO grades will become part of the student’s GPA, as well as the valedictorian and salutatorian decision. However, only PSEO credits that are from the core curriculum of graduation requirements will figure into the valedictorian and salutatorian GPA decision, not elective credits. The core curriculum would include Social Studies, English, Mathematics, Science, and Foreign Languages. The elective credits will still be a part of the student transcript and cumulative GPA. PSEO classes will be weighted as any other high school course.
PSEO coursework is also creating a college transcript. When students apply for college admission, official transcripts must be requested by the student from the PSEO institution of attendance and sent in as part of the application process. The PSEO transcript will become part of the student’s full college transcript and will transfer with them to all colleges attended.
