Meet with an Academic Advisor
Please select your program from the list below to find advising information. If you are an international student, you can connect with your academic advisor via email and meet them when you arrive in Portland. If you are unsure of what program you want to pursue, you should contact Advising & Career Services to discuss your interests and options. If you are planning to complete prerequisites for other graduate or professional programs, contact the academic department.
Take Placement Tests or Satisfy Prerequisites
If you need to take a math, chemistry, and/or second language class, you may be expected to complete a placement test prior to enrolling in a related class or have the required prerequisite. You may not be able to register for classes until you complete these tests or can show that you have taken the required prerequisite. Students with specific majors probably need to complete the math placement test prior to signing up for Orientation. Find out if you need to take the Math Placement Test.
Submit Missing Documents*
Submit official transcripts or test scores that are still missing from your application to the Admissions Office. Review our Official Records Policy for more information and instructions for sending transcripts and other documents to PSU.
Review Your Health Insurance Options
PSU requires that all domestic students enrolled in five in-load, non-restricted differential tuition credits or more per term maintain comprehensive health insurance to ensure that students stay healthy and in the classroom. The PSU Health Insurance Plan is major medical health insurance providing preventative, routine, and specialized health benefits and students are automatically enrolled and billed the $827 per term (2016-17 cost). Those who have comparable outside health insurance can apply to waive the PSU Health Insurance Plan.
Submit MMR Vaccine Form
Oregon law requires domestic students show evidence of immunity to measles before registering for their second term of enrollment.
