Financial Support

We strongly recommend that you review the Costs and Information Regarding Financial Support Requirements & Certification of Financial Responsibility so you understand the costs associated with enrolling at the University of Pittsburgh, as financial aid and scholarships are not available to international students.

 

Proof of financial support is not required at the point of application, but it is required of students who are offered admission and plan to enroll at Pitt.

 

Tips for Submitting Your Application

To ensure proper and efficient processing of your application, keep these tips in mind:

  1. Use Your Full Legal Name on All Documents. It is extremely important that you use your full legal name, exactly as it appears on your passport, when completing your admissions, TOEFL, and SAT/ACT applications. Be sure to also print this same full legal name clearly on all of your application materials (application fee, test scores, Certification of Financial Responsibility Form, academic records, etc.).We will not be able to issue the necessary immigration documents if the name you provide on your application is different from your name as it appears on your passport.
  2. Do Not List a Post Office Box as Your Permanent Foreign Address. In order for the Office of International Services to issue your I-20 form, the permanent home address listed on your application for admission must be a foreign physical address. When completing your application, be sure to provide a foreign street address (not a P.O. Box) as your permanent home address.

 

Wondering if we have received your required credentials?

This portal will allow you to check the status of your application at any time. The site will tell you if all of the required items — the application, the application fee, your test scores, your official transcript(s) and, if applicable, your official credential evaluation— have been received. It will not indicate whether supplemental information, such as art portfolios or recordings, or letters of recommendation have been received.
