Pacific 3+2 Dual Degree Program
Pacific University & Portland State University
Dual Degree Program
About the Program
The dual degree program is a "three + two" agreement between Portland State University and Pacific University, which allows students to earn two Bachelor's degrees in five years. Students spend the first three years at Pacific to complete the core of a liberal arts degree, followed by two years at Portland State University to complete the engineering degree. Credits transfer between institutions to complete the two degrees.
Upon successful completion of the program, students will have earned two baccalaureate degrees: one in a natural sciences discipline from from Pacific, and one in either Civil Engineering or Environmental Engineering from Portland State.
How to Apply
1. Review Program Admission Requirements
Prior to admission, students must:
- Be in disciplinary good standing at Pacific
- Maintain a minimum 3.0 overall GPA and a minimum 3.0 GPA in Math and Science courses at Pacific
- Complete 90 semester hours or 135 credit hours at Pacific
- Complete the program course requirements for the intended PSU engineering degree
We recommend carefully reviewing the Pacific University dual degree requirements and working closely with advisors at both universities to ensure success in the program.
2. Apply to PSU
3. Apply to the Upper Division
In addition to applying for PSU, students must also submit a separate, secondary application to the CEE Upper Division Program in order to access 300-400 level engineering coursework at Portland State. Students should apply to the Upper Division by April 15th of the year they plan to enroll in Fall courses at PSU, as they are finishing up their final courses at Pacific University. More information, frequently asked questions, and application instructions can be found on the Upper Division Admissions page.
