Student Right-to-Know Graduation Rates: Pittsburgh Campus

This Student Right-to-Know (SRTK) rate complies with Federal guidelines, which specifies graduation from the campus initially enrolled.  Because each University of Pittsburgh campus is treated as a separate institution, students who begin as a first-year student at one campus and receive a degree from another campus are not counted as graduates. Because of this, SRTK graduation rates for the regional campuses (Johnstown, Greensburg, Titusville, and Bradford) may appear artificially low in comparison with system wide graduation reports.  

Graduation rates of full-time, first-time, degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates (baccalaureate degree-seeking) within 150% of normal time to program completion, by gender, race/ethnicity, and Title IV aid status.

We have elected not to report transfer-out rates for the Pittsburgh Campus as this campus’ mission does not include providing substantial preparation for students to enroll in other institutions.

The table below shows system-wide graduation rates.

84% is the six-year graduation rate for baccalaureate degree-seeking students entering the Pittsburgh Campus in Fall 2016 and who either graduated from the Pittsburgh Campus or another University of Pittsburgh campus.  

This figure may differ from SRTK rates reported or graduation rates provided in other publications due to differing cohort definitions used by the University of Pittsburgh.
