PSU bases admission on a combination of gpa and test scores. If students cannot meet those minimums, it is unlikely they will be successful at first. The better option may be for them to take community college classes to make up for the gaps and then transfer into a four-year institution. Our community colleges do a wonderful job of preparing students for four-year degrees. Transfer student gpa minimums are typically lower. At PSU, there is even the option of co-admission to PSU and local area community colleges which saves students money and offers them more choices of classes/schedules. I would love to see less of a relationship between the Oregon universities and tighter relationships between four-year institutions and their local community colleges. Local agreements would really allow us to prioritize the educational needs of our communities. PSU's motto is "Let Knowledge Serve the City." We do not have much in common with UO or OSU and should not be managed in the same manner.
