Additional Requirements

To see how you will transfer into PSU's University Studies program, refer to General Education. We highly encourage you to talk with a PCC Academic Advisor to learn more about meeting PSU's general education and bachelor degree requirements.

PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
