Transfer Workshops

Transferring to Portland State University is pretty easy, especially if you attend one of our Transfer Workshops offered at local community colleges in the fall and spring terms. But there’s more to think about than the how-to nuts and bolts. Research shows a full four-year college education has become all but essential for high-level jobs. College graduates earn about twice as much on average as high school graduates.

Sign-up below and drop by anytime between 10 am and 1 pm.

At Transfer Workshops:

  • Apply to PSU and defer your $50 application fee!
  • Speak with an academic advisor
  • Get your financial aid and scholarship questions answered
  • Explore on-campus housing options
  • Learn how the credits you’ve already earned will transfer to PSU
  • Attend an optional Transfer Tips presentation from 11:00 - 11:45, room location will be included in your confirmation email

If you bring your official transcripts (from every college you’ve attended) and apply to PSU online 48 hours before you’ll get an instant admission decision AND we’ll defer your $50 application fee.

More than 60% of students at Portland State University enroll after taking classes at other colleges and universities. We understand your needs and concerns as a transfer student. 

* This event is for students earning their first time Bachelor's degree only. Students pursuing a post-baccalaureate or graduate degree should contact the academic department of their interest.
