Determining Residency (Pennsylvania or Out of State)

See Tuition Eligibility Guidelines under Student Payment Center.

 

Determining How Full-Time vs Part-Time Students Are Billed

In the Fall and Spring Terms:

Undergraduate students registered for 12 to 18 credits in the Fall and Spring Terms are regarded as full-time students, and are assessed the current undergraduate "flat" tuition rate for their academic center.

Undergraduate students registered for fewer than 12 credits are considered part-time, and are billed on a per-credit basis.

Graduate students registered for 9 to 15 credits in the Fall and Spring Terms are regarded as full-time students, and are assessed the current graduate "flat" tuition rate for their academic center.

Graduate students registered for fewer than 9 credits are considered part-time, and billed on a per-credit basis.

Students will be charged per credit for each credit exceeding the maximum full-time credit limit.

In the Summer Term:

All students are billed on a per-credit basis in the Summer Term with the exception of students in the School of Dental Medicine Dental Hygiene Certificate Program; the Swanson School of Engineering undergraduate program; the Katz Graduate School of Business Full-time MBA, MBA/MS and EMBA Programs; and the School of Nursing Accelerated Nursing Program.

Determining How Undergraduate vs. Graduate Students are billed

Students are billed at the undergraduate or graduate tuition level in accordance with University of Pittsburgh Tuition and Fees Policy 09-05-03.

  • A student enrolled in an associate’s or bachelor’s degree program is considered an undergraduate student and is billed at the appropriate undergraduate tuition rate.
  • A student who has already been awarded a bachelor’s degree and is enrolled in a graduate or doctorate-professional practice program is considered a graduate student and is billed at the appropriate graduate tuition rate, even for undergraduate classes taken during the student’s graduate career.
  • A student who has already been awarded a bachelor’s degree and is enrolled in an associate’s program or in another bachelor’s program is considered a post-baccalaureate student.  Post-baccalaureate students enrolled in an undergraduate academic center are billed at the undergraduate tuition rate, while post-baccalaureate students enrolled in an academic center that has both undergraduate and graduate degree programs may be billed at either the undergraduate or graduate rate, according to the admitting school’s program requirements.
