Committed to Affordability: Tuition and Financial Aid

A degree from the University of Pittsburgh is an investment in yourself, and the Office of Financial Aid is committed to offering you an affordable world-class education. Reflecting that commitment, almost all students who apply for financial aid–94%–receive some form of assistance to support their goals. 

 

Financial aid awards typically include a combination of scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study employment that are based on financial need and academic performance. And, if you qualify for the federal Pell Grant, we will match it dollar for dollar, maximizing the impact of this program.
