    Paying by credit card

    * Please note that the credit card processor does not currently work with certain versions of the Mac operating system.
    * If you are an organization paying for an employee, please note that the student account must be created with the student’s information, not a company representative’s.

    1. Locate the class you would like to register for in our course catalog. The most effective way to use the search is to enter as few criteria as possible: for example, a keyword from the title and a Subject Area / Program. The more criteria that are entered, the more your search is limited.
    2. Click [Add to Cart]. Select any valid price adjustments if they are available (e.g., Early Bird Discount).
    3. Click [Continue Checkout]. You will then be taken to a Login page. If you registered for a noncredit class since December 2011, enter your username and password and proceed with checkout. 
If you last took a class before December 2011, or have never taken a class, please select New User, enter your email address, and proceed with check-out to create a student account.
    4. Check your email. You will receive an enrollment confirmation with a PDF payment receipt attached.

    * If you are an organization registering multiple employees by credit card in numbers where it is not feasible to enroll them individually (e.g., sending eight clinicians to a mental health seminar), please have your employees create their student accounts here. Once they have all been created, call 503-725-9968 to pay by phone or e-mail to arrange the best time for us to reach you.

Refund amount is determined by the postmarked date on the written drop notification or at the time of the in-person drop, based on the schedule below.

If registration took place through a third party or group, you will need to contact your third party/group coordinator. Refunds for third party/group registrations must be requested by the third party/group contact person.

    Classes in Continuing Education are offered on a self-support basis. Therefore, a decision to hold the class is based on enrollment. If insufficient enrollment or any other significant reason necessitates canceling a course, an effort will be made to contact those students who have preregistered, and credit tuition or noncredit fee will be refunded. 

    Exceptions for any of the above policies must be approved by the Director of Continuing Education/Associate Dean for Outreach.

    Admission and university policies 

    Formal admission to Portland State is required when registering for more than eight credits per term (except summer term when enrollment is limited to 21 credits). All University policies apply to offerings from the Continuing Education/Graduate School of Education. See the information for students on our website for details.

    PSU ID
    PSU OneCards with your Portland State University ID number are mailed directly to all Portland State University and Continuing Education students registered for credit. Please review the information.

    Fee assessment policy
    Because classes in Continuing Education are offered on a self-support basis, course fees are assessed independent of the amount paid for full- or part-time tuition (not calculated in cumulative and/or maximum fee charges).

    Equal access/disabilities policy 
    Portland State University fully supports the right to equal access to its classes by students with disabilities and makes every reasonable effort to ensure this access. Students with disabilities who require assistance should contact the Disability Resource Center at 503-725-4150 at least 15 working days before the scheduled beginning date of the course.
