Yes! University Studies is Portland State's general education requirement and you must complete some portion of the program to graduate. Your initial placement will reflect the number of credits transferred upon admission to Portland State. Your placement may change if you continue to transfer credits from the community college after admission to Portland State.
A Portland State academic adviser can advise you regarding University Studies placement. Contact your major department or, if you have not yet chosen a major, contact Advising & Career Services. For contact information, go to: pdx.edu/advising/advising-locations
