*In the admissions review, we will calculate your prerequisite average without including the effect of course repeats. The original grade earned in the prerequisites will be counted. Also, if you opt to take any business courses prior to admission to Pitt Business, please be aware that your performance in them will impact your admissibility. 

If you transferred to the University of Pittsburgh from another college, your performance at your previous school will be considered during the admissions process for Pitt Business. It is important to discuss prior college performance with your academic advisor and any impact it may have on admission.

To be eligible for transfer to the College of Business Administration, international students must have a TOEFL score of 100 or greater OR have completed ENGCMP 0200 Seminar in Composition or its regional campus equivalent.
