You can choose from more than 40 majors and 50 minors, concentrations and pre-professional programs. You'll study on our 317-acre campus, which is nestled in the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains.

We're a four-year regional campus of the University of Pittsburgh system. That means you'll be able to tap into the Power of Pitt, and when you graduate, you'll have the prestigious University of Pittsburgh degree, which is recognized all over the world.

And we work hard to make that valuable degree affordable for you. More than 94 percent of our students receive financial aid. In fact, during the 2016-17 academic year, the average financial aid award was $17,900 for in-state students and $25,800 for out-of-state students.

For all of those reasons and more:
