To be considered for regular admission by Portland State University applicants must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75 in all undergraduate courses or a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 in all graduate courses (a minimum of 9 credits). Students with an undergraduate GPA below 2.75 can be considered for conditional admission. The conditions of admission usually require the student to maintain a 3.0 GPA or above for the first 9 credits of his/her graduate program. Students failing to meet this condition will be dropped from the department. The average GPA of admitted students is 3.4.
