Become a Student

Thank you for your interest in Portland State University
We look forward to welcoming you to our urban campus.
Students sitting in a PSU classroom

We are Oregon’s most diverse university, in the middle of one of America’s most livable, progressive, and creative cities. You’ll find that there is not one kind of student here, and we encourage each student to follow their own path to achieve their goals. You will stand out at PSU, and you’ll do it in your own way.
