The University of Pittsburgh is a member of the Association of American Universities, which includes the top 62 research institutions in North America.

For outstanding freshman applicants, the University offers a limited number of freshman guarantees to some of its most competitive graduate and professional programs.
During your undergraduate career at one of Pitt’s regional campuses, as you complete the academic course work related to your guarantee program, there also will be plenty of out-of-the-classroom learning opportunities available to you that will allow you to complement your course work with experiential learning in the form of volunteer work, internships, and/or undergraduate research. The cities where our regional campuses are located offer many such opportunities. You are encouraged to take full advantage of them as you plan your undergraduate career.
