In addition to its own baccalaureate programs, Pitt-Greensburg offers opportunities for students to complete one of Pitt’s 100+ undergraduate majors by relocating to Pittsburgh or another Pitt campus after the successful completion of several terms. Students considering this option work closely with their Academic Advisor to remain on track with the relocation requirements listed below. Most importantly, no matter which campus you start or finish at, your degree will say the University of Pittsburgh!
