Post Baccalaureate Tuition

Students who have earned an accredited baccalaureate degree, but have not been admitted to a graduate degree program, may enroll at the post baccalaureate level.  These students are admitted to Portland State to earn a second bachelor’s degree or a certificate, to complete pre-requisites for admission to graduate school, or to earn other academic credit.

Post baccalaureate students are assessed at the undergraduate tuition rate for all courses that they take numbered 499 or below.

Post baccalaureate students are assessed at the graduate tuition rate for all courses that they take numbered 500 or above.

Please note that financial aid eligibility for post baccalaureate students depends on the student's program, not necessarily the tuition rate being paid for a class. In addition, please note that students enrolled in differential tuition classes will be assessed higher rates for those specific courses. For more information, visit the Office of Student Financial Aid or call 503-725-3461.
