Can I study at Portland State University without a TOEFL or IELTS score or with a lower score than the minimum required for admission? Do you offer conditional admission?

International undergraduate and postbaccalaureate applicants who do not meet the minimum Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score requirements can be conditionally admitted to PSU. Conditionally admitted students are restricted to English as a Second Language (ESL) classes until they earn a sufficient TOEFL or IELTS score.

International graduate applicants who do not meet the minimum TOEFL or IELTS score requirements must contact the graduate department to which they are applying to initiate a petition to the Office of Graduate Studies for special consideration. The Admissions office does not offer conditional admission to graduate students without the approval of the Office of Graduate Studies.
