Portland State University is Part of Verto’s Direct Transfer Program

Through Verto’s Direct Transfer Program, you can gain admission to Portland State based on your academic performance with the courses delivered by the Academic Provider during your Verto study abroad experience. While admission will depend on Portland State’s availability and is ultimately up to their discretion, this route tends to give Verto participants who meet the college’s academic criteria a higher chance of admission and a fast-tracked application.
