Go Beyond NYS Award

Incoming students are excited about the new Go Beyond NYS Award that enables qualifying students in Allegany, Cattaraugus or Chautauqua County in New York state to pay the same standard tuition as PA students instead of the higher out-of-state tuition.

“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 plans to major in criminal justice this fall.

“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 plans to major in sports medicine this fall.  

"With an opportunity such as this I would be a fool NOT to take advantage of this award." -- Mark Braithwaite of Olean, NY, who plans to major in athletic training this fall

"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 plans to major in business management this fall     

This new opportunity takes effect in Fall 2014.

To qualify you need to:

  • Live in one of those three 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.
