As a prospective student to the University of Pittsburgh, you may wish to sit in on a class during your visit to campus.

Please note that classes do not meet on Monday, September 3 (Labor Day), Monday and Tuesday, October 15-16 (Fall Break), and Wednesday, November 21 through Sunday, November 25 (Thanksgiving Recess).

The following is a list of classes that University professors have agreed to allow prospective students to sample.

If you take advantage of this opportunity, please be sensitive to the following:

  • Do not disrupt the class in any way.
  • On some days, examinations will be administered. We have no way of monitoring that schedule and suggest that you quietly leave the class if this is the case.
  • If you wish to speak to a professor, please wait until after the class has ended to do so.

Thank you for your interest in the University of Pittsburgh. We hope that you will enjoy exploring our wide variety of academic offerings. Hail to Pitt!
