Grading, Transcripts, and AP/IB Score Evaluation During COVID-19

If you are a high school senior, we know you are facing unprecedented challenges as a result of COVID-19. We know that many of you are concerned because your school has been closed, classes modified, exams canceled, or grading structures changed, in addition to what would normally be an exciting time turned into something difficult. Portland State University’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions is open and committed to providing guidance for concerned students and families regarding their status with Portland State.

Peter’s Story: A Bias for Political Action

Peter Wedlake realized his career path when he volunteered with the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign in high school. That experience convinced him that he was passionate about politics. Currently at Portland State University, he studies Political Science and Urban and Public Affairs, with a minor in Economics. Peter is also a third-generation alumnus of Portland State University! We love to hear about connections through family.
