FULL-TIME AND PART-TIME STATUS
The University of Pittsburgh consists of several academic schools and tuition rates may vary among them. If you are an undergraduate student enrolled for 12 to 18 units in the fall and spring terms you are regarded as a full-time student. You are assessed the current "flat" tuition rate for your school. If you are an undergraduate student enrolled for 11.5 or fewer units, you are considered part-time, and you are billed on a per-credit basis.
If you are a graduate student enrolled for 9 to 15 units in the fall and spring terms you are considered a full-time student, and are assessed the current graduate "flat" tuition rate for your school. If you are a graduate student enrolled for 8.5 or fewer units, you are considered part-time and are billed on a per-unit basis.
Undergraduate students are not permitted to enroll for more than 18 units or 15 units for graduate students, without the permission of the dean of the school in which the student is pursuing a degree.
Undergraduate students who enroll for more than 18 units and graduate students who enroll for more than 15 units will be billed on a per-unit basis for each additional unit that exceeds their full "flat" tuition rate.
You are billed on a per-unit basis in the summer term, with the exception of students enrolled in the Dental Medicine Undergraduate Program, Mining and Cooperative Engineering (undergraduate), and Graduate Business (full-time MBA).
