Residency And Tuition Rates
Tuition rates for the University of Pittsburgh are based on whether or not the student is a resident of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. A higher tuition rate is charged to nonresidents.
Guidelines for Determining Eligibility for Reduced Tuition Rates
Any admitted student may petition for reclassification to resident status by supplying convincing evidence to be reviewed by the Registrar's Office. To be effective for a particular term, petitions must be submitted within the first 30 calendar days of the term (15 calendar days of the session.)
Students who change their residence from Pennsylvania to another state must promptly give written notice to the Registrar's Office and students under 21 years of age must report a change in their parents' or legal guardians' address.
Students who are found eligible for resident tuition rates at the time of initial classification due to an error in classification are subject to retroactive reclassification as nonresidents and are responsible for the payment of all related tuition and fees.
