The graduation rate at the Pittsburgh Campus of the University of Pittsburgh, calculated according to U.S. Department of Education's Student Right-To-Know (SRTK) guidelines, is 81%.
This U.S. Department of Education's guidelines for the SRTK Graduation Rate is described as follows:
- It is based upon students who entered as full-time, first-time freshmen and graduated within 150% of the length of their program. For example, in regards to baccalaureate-seeking freshmen, this 150% measure describes students graduating from a four-year program within six years.
- It is an average of the graduation rates of four freshman classes, with these being the most recent four classes for which the above 150% measure can be determined.
Hence, the current SRTK graduation rate of 81% is based upon baccaluareate-seeking freshmen who had:
- entered in Fall Term 2006 and graduated by August 2012
- entered in Fall Term 2007 and graduated by August 2013
- entered in Fall Term 2008 and graduated by August 2014
- entered in Fall Term 2009 and graduated by August 2015.
The following information describes the most recent baccalaureate-seeking freshman cohort that was included in the calculation of the above-referenced SRTK graduation rate.
