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 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
  • entered in Fall Term 2010 and graduated by August 2016
