Advanced & Continuing Education

Welcome to Advanced and Continuing Education

We provide an exceptional opportunity to Get Ready for the Real World.

The Office of Advanced and Continuing Education at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown seeks to serve a diverse group of nontraditional students (i.e. 21 years old or older) by providing access to the college's academic resources. 

Advanced Education provides nontraditional students an opportunity to begin an academic program at Pitt-Johnstown on either a part-time or full-time basis.  Students who enroll through the Office of Advanced Education benefit from communication geared to their situations and needs, personalized academic advising, and assistance with transferral into traditional academic divisions at Pitt-Johnstown.

Internal Transfer Procedures

After the completion of 12 or more credits under the auspices of Advanced Education, students may request formal transfer to the advising rolls of one of Pitt-Johnstown's traditional academic divisions.  The Director of Advanced Education will monitor academic progress and preparation for transfer.

In designated academic areas, such as the upper-division Bachelor of Science degree in Health Related Professions, majors in the Arts and Sciences, post-baccalaureate programs, and non-degree clusters of career-oriented courses, students will remain enrolled under the auspices of Advanced Education.

"The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown has provided
the skills and education necessary for me
to be successful in today's competitive job market.
Its convenient location has allowed me to further my
education while staying close to home
--Bill A.
