University of Pittsburgh applicants are required to submit an official credential evaluation of all international documents (transcripts, marksheets, certificates, examination results, etc.) from one of the two evaluators, below.

Josef Silny and Associates

The Office of Admissions and Financial Aid prefers that you use the evaluation services of Josef Silny and Associates (JS&A). If you use JS&A, you can send your records directly to JS&A.

Once JS&A has evaluated them, it will send your scanned official records, translations of your records, and evaluation directly to the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid, electronically.

Please submit records as specified on the JS&A printable credential evaluation application that is specifically designed for University of Pittsburgh applicants.

  • Freshman applicants
    • In the United States, a secondary school transcript covers 4 years from grades 9-12. If secondary school in your country covers only 3 years, please be sure to also submit the 3rd year of your middle school record.
    • Rising seniors (presented enrolled in grade 12) should send a transcript for the three years you have completed, including the 3rd year of middle school if applicable.
