Tuition and Fees


  • Keep in mind ...

    In 2017-18, 98% of students applying for assistance received some form of financial aid, and more than 65% of new freshmen received a merit scholarship, which they can receive all four years as long as they maintain eligibility. In fact, in 2017-18, the average financial aid award was roughly $16,374 for in-state students and about $23,000 for out-of-state students.

    So, with our generous financial aid you'll end up with a relatively low  cost of attendance. Please be sure to check out our information on scholarships and financial aid.

    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.
