Pass/Fail courses may be accepted for transfer credit if it can be documented that a “P” grade corresponds to a grade of “C” or better.

To receive a University of Pittsburgh degree, you must complete, at a minimum, your last 30 credits at the University of Pittsburgh. Specific graduation and other requirements for different University of Pittsburgh schools vary. (Note: a maximum of 60 credits can transfer from a two-year degree program; and a maximum of 90 from a four-year college/university.)

To help facilitate the transfer of credits from Pennsylvania’s community colleges, state system of higher education and other selected colleges, the University has established transfer guides (link with these are below).
