Frequently Asked Questions are addressed by each school in the links above. We would like to give priority to students who are truly interested in remaining on the wait list, so please complete the form as soon as possible.
Should you decide to be on the wait list, please note that it is not a numerical wait list and a clear picture of probability for fall term admission is not currently available. Fall admission depends on a number of variables, so please do not call to request this type of information.
The University of Pittsburgh regional campuses often offer admission to students placed on the Pittsburgh campus wait list. You may want to consider visiting one or more of the regional campuses to explore your options.
