This program allows students the opportunity to earn college credit through Southwest Minnesota State University for certain class(es) taken here at LSHS. For students not planning to attend Southwest State after high school graduation, the College Now courses are guaranteed to transfer to all other MNSCU (Minnesota State Colleges and Universities) institutions. They typically transfer fairly well to other colleges or universities outside of MN or local private colleges, too.
Currently for the 2020-2021 school year, Lakeville South is offering Pre-Calculus as part of the College Now opportunity. A student earning a passing grade in semester 1 and 2 of the course is eligible for not only LSHS credit, but also five Southwest Minnesota State University credits from the College Now concurrent enrollment program.
To enroll in a College Now course, students must meet the following criteria:
- GPA of 3.0 or higher
- Ranked in the top third of your class at the end of your sophomore year, or in the top half of your class at the end of your junior year.
- Ready to take on a rigorous course of study that will require more work than most high school classes and require good study habits.
Please talk with your Dean of Students to see if this opportunity is a good fit for you, your overall plans and/or your schedule.
