|School or College||Transfer Guidelines|
|Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences and College of General Studies||Competitive prospective transfer students typically have completed 24 or more college credits with a preferred GPA of 3.0 or higher AND have a strong college preparatory high school record predictive of college level success. Applicants’ academic histories are reviewed ‘holistically’ and cumulatively so students with a weaker high school record may need to have earned more college level credits than others (48-60) to be considered competitive. Likewise, significant life and/or work experiences, if communicated in your application essay, will be part of your admission review. Should you have questions about applying, call 412-624-7488 and ask to speak with a transfer counselor.
Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences applicants who have earned 48 or more credits will be expected to have satisfactorily completed one college level English composition course and a college level algebra class (or higher level math) with a ‘C’ grade or better. Students who have not completed these requirements will be reviewed on an individual basis.
A note for community college transfer applicants to the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences and the College of General Studies:If you are currently enrolled in an Associate’s Degree program or taking courses at a community college, we normally expect you to complete two full years of transferable coursework before you enroll at the University of Pittsburgh. However, if you completed a strong college preparatory curriculum in high school with grades and test scores (SAT or ACT) that would have made you admissible as a freshman, then it is likely that we may offer you admission even if you have completed less than two years of coursework, provided that your college-level work demonstrates academic success.
