Go Beyond NYS Award

  • If you are a new incoming student from Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua or Erie Counties in New York State, you may qualify for the Go Beyond NYS Award that enables qualified students to pay the same standard tuition as PA students instead of the higher out-of-state tuition.

    This new award first went into effect for students entering Pitt-Bradford in Fall 2014, and it is being continued for students entering in the 2016-2017 academic year.

    To qualify you need to

    • Live in one of those four New York counties
    • Be a new student
    • Be a full-time student 
    • Maintain at least a 2.25 grade point average throughout your four years at Pitt-Bradford. 

    The PA-state tuition rate applies only for eight consecutive Fall and Spring terms (four years) and cannot be used for courses taken during the summer.
    You should also be aware of the award terms and conditions.

    Many students are already taking advantage of this award.  

    “This award will help further my education without the extra stress of being an out-of-state student. It allows me to attend the college of my choice without that added stress. “ -- Brenna Gustin of Wellsville, NY, who is majoring in criminal justice.

    “Your NYS award is both beneficial to your university and to the students who live in the New York counties in which the award applies. It gives students the chance to receive a quality education without having to pay out-of-state tuition. I hope other students take advantage of this opportunity.” -- Michael Sprague of Olean, NY, who is majoring  in sports medicine.  

    "The award is an amazing opportunity. I have always been interested in Pitt, but the out-of-state tuition was always kept me from applying. This award is helping me because it means less for me to pay back in student loans" -- Gabby Smith of Little Valley, NY, who is majoring in business management .
