You belong at PSU!

Portland State welcomes more transfer students than any college in Oregon. The Transfer & Returning Student Resource Center is here to help you smoothly transition to PSU and to support you on your path to degree completion. Whether you come to PSU from another institution or are coming to PSU after a significant break from your education, you belong at PSU!

The TRSRC is the direct result of PSU listening to the needs of our students who identified a need for supporting the large population of students at PSU transferring from another school or returning after a break in their education. Learn more about the TRSRC Values.

For TRSRC Hours of Operation, please visit the Contact the TRSRC page, or come visit our office in the Fariborz Maseeh Hall Building (FMH 342).
