Address Needs of Underprepared Students

Goal: Ensure unprepared students (less than 3.0 high school GPA) have the best possible chance of success at Portland State University.

Action Plan to Support Students with HSGPA below 3.0

Method: Align PSU’s institutional capacity to serve under-prepared students with the number of students admitted to PSU. Plan and deploy interventions such as mandated testing of skills, required remedial coursework, and learning assistance to keep this student segment on track. Review, articulate and suggest alternate admission pathways using community colleges for students who do not meet PSU’s admission standards.

Outcome: Addressing the needs of students with less than 3.0 high school GPA and redesigning the admission matrix will ensure unprepared students have the best possible chance of succeeding at Portland State University.
