Transfer Open House

Transfer Open Houses are monthly events for students interested in transferring to PSU. This event is a great opportunity to meet with admissions and financial aid representatives, learn about PSU and tour our beautiful, 50 acre, downtown campus. 

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. Visit our beautiful campus and learn more about becoming a PSU Viking!

* 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.
