Take control of your summer and get on the fast track to graduation. Our summer classes are designed to fit your schedule and help you advance on your degree path. Study wherever you are. Check off a requirement or try something new. 



Portland State is Oregon’s most affordable urban research university, and many admitted students are eligible for financial aid during the summer.





Our summer classes offer the same resources and services you’re used to at Portland State. You can talk with advisors, find an academic coach or tutor in our Learning Center, work with an online consultant from our Writing Center, chat with a librarian 24/7, or connect with a resource center. We’re here to help.
