2020-2021 Tuition Rates (per term)

The Flex @ Pitt model allows students to choose the course delivery option that best fits their needs. No matter how we deliver our courses, the unparalleled value of a Pitt education and the expertise of our world-class faculty remain unchanged. Despite rising fixed costs, the University is holding tuition, as well as room and board rates, flat for the 2020-21 academic year. While most fees are also being held flat, at the recommendation of our student government boards—and recognizing many in-person activities are not able to take place this year—we are reducing the Student Activity fees this year across all five campuses by 20%.
 
Students can drop all of their courses and have their tuition and fees reversed through the end of the add/drop period, which has been extended due to COVID-19. Thereafter, their tuition and fee charges will be prorated in accordance with the University’s policy.
