International Student Transfer

Welcome to Portland State and Portland, Oregon!

PSU welcomes over 1,800 international students from over 100 countries! We have many services and support systems in place to help you succeed and enjoy your experience here.

As an international student, you might be transferring from either a 2-year or a 4-year institution. The transfer requirements are the same no matter where you are transferring from: 2.25 GPA in at least 30 transferrable college credits and a C- grade or better in WR 121 College Writing (or equivalent).  As an international transfer student, you do have some other requirements to be aware of. For general information, go to:

If you are transferring credits from an Oregon university or an Oregon or Southwest Washington community college, you can see how credits will transfer even before applying for admission. Go to: This website allows you to create an unofficial degree audit for yourself, or to simply look at lists of credits and how they transfer. When you apply for formal admission to PSU, you will receive an official evaluation of all of your transfer credits.
