To ensure proper and efficient processing of your application, keep these tips in mind:
- Use your full legal name on all documents. It is extremely important that you use your full legal name, exactly as it appears on your passport, when completing your application. We will not be able to issue the necessary immigration documents if the name you provide on your application is different from your name as it appears on your passport. Be sure to write this same full legal name on all of your application materials (application fee, test scores, Financial Verification Form, academic records, etc.).
- Do not list a post office box as your permanent foreign address. In order for us to issue your I-20 form, the permanent home address listed on your application for admission must be a foreign physical address. When completing your application, be sure to provide a foreign street address (not a P.O. Box) as your permanent home address.
- Avoid submitting unnecessary materials. The items listed in the Basic Application Procedures and the category for which you'll apply, are all that is needed to review your application. Please do not send unnecessary supporting documents or items such as photographs, recordings, writing samples, awards or commendations, etc., unless requested. If you would like us to know about a relevent activity, talent or award, please include that information in your personal statement.
- Use the correct mailing address. Send all materials to:
University of Pittsburgh - International Admissions
4227 Fifth Ave
Pittsburgh, PA 15260
