Testing information for Home School students considering PSEO

Anoka-Ramsey does not currently offer any testing on campus that can be used to qualify for admission to PSEO.  Students are welcome to take any nationally standardized test such as the Iowa Basic, Stanford Achievement Test, California Achievement Test (CAT) PLAN, or ACT.  The state of Minnesota does require annual, nationally standardized achievement tests, most of which would work for PSEO admissions standards.  Please contact the admissions office if you are unsure of whether a test will be accepted for PSEO admissions.
