Visiting and Exchange Students
Welcome to the Portland State School of Business!
Students who wish to take courses at the Portland State School of Business but who are completing a degree at another institution will need to follow some simple instructions before registering for courses at PSU:
- Become admitted to Portland State University, either through an exchange program or as a visiting student. Students planning to take 8 credits or less may enroll at PSU with the Quick Entry form. Students planning on taking more than 8 credits may enroll at PSU through PSU Admissions.
- Students who wish to take 300- or 400-level business classes must demonstrate the following, either by filling out the Special Permission- Visiting Student Status form (PDF) and having it signed by the student's advisor at their home school:
- Class standing - Students must have 90 quarter credits to register for 300 and 400 level classes.
- Prerequisites - Students must meet course prerequisites. See Course Information for more information.
The computer system does not recognize class standing or prerequisites for visiting or exchange students. As a result, visiting and exchange students must register for courses by submitting the special permission/visiting student status form to SBA 240 then registering online at banweb.pdx.edu.
