Pitt-Greensburg is Extending the Test-Optional Admissions Policy Through 2023.

Applying to Pitt-Greensburg? The decision to include SAT or ACT scores in the application portfolio is up to you. 

The University of Pittsburgh’s decision to go test-optional through Fall 2023 is to ensure that no student is denied the opportunity to be considered for admission.

All applicants to the University of Pittsburgh receive a comprehensive individual review; admission is not based on a single factor. In the absence of SAT or ACT test scores, the committee will determine admissibility by relying more heavily on other admissions factors.

Please Note: Once a student’s application is under review, their test-optional status cannot be changed.

Should I apply test-optional?

For students with SAT/ACT scores, how you wish to present yourself to the Admissions Committee should be a personal decision. If you do not consider your test results to be an accurate reflection of your past academic performance and future academic potential, you may want to apply test-optional. Subsequently, if you have SAT/ACT results you believe add to your overall academic portfolio, you are invited to submit those scores. Read more here >>

Personal Statement or Essay

When the application is finalized and submitted, applicants can’t go back in to submit a personal statement. Applicants who wish to provide a Personal Statement or Essay in support of their application after submitting their application can email it to upgimnow@pitt.edu. Applicants must include their First Name, Last Name and home address as supplied on the application for admission.
