Pitt2Pitt Program

Updated as of January 27, 2021.

Graduating Pitt Seniors and Recent Alumni  

Are you trying to improve your skills so you can be more competitive in the job market? Would you like to pivot into a different field? The Pitt2Pitt program can help graduating University of Pittsburgh seniors to complete a Pitt master's degree or certificate program. Also, many Pitt2Pitt programs are now available to recent alumni!

More than 60 graduate and professional programs from 12 schools are included in the Pitt2Pitt program. Graduating seniors and recent alumni from all Pitt campuses can apply for $2,500 or $5,000 scholarships. The Scholarship FAQs below detail the scholarship amounts and disbursement.

Pitt2Pitt programs are offered in data science, management, public health, engineering, health sciences, education and other fields. Applications are now being accepted for the Spring 2021 and Fall 2021 terms. For most programs, the application fees are waived for eligible Pitt2Pitt applicants. A few programs can be taken part-time or fully online. For the Spring 2021 semester, please note that all programs will be offered via the Flex@Pitt instructional model in order to accommodate both in-person and remote instructors and students during the pandemic.

How to Apply

There is no central Pitt2Pitt application for all programs. The tables below, which are organized by the participating school, provide an overview of each program. You can find out which alumni are eligible to apply and which programs are available fully online or on a part-time basis. For complete details of each Pitt2Pitt program, including admissions requirements and the program application, please visit the school's website using the links below. You can apply to more than one program—most Pitt2Pitt programs have waived the application fee. 

Space in and scholarships to some of the Pitt2Pitt programs may be limited, so we encourage you to contact the admissions staff as soon as possible.
