Internal Transfer Guidelines for Pittsburgh and Regional Campus Students

For students enrolled at the University of Pittsburgh for Spring 2016 (2164) and After

Guidelines for Admissions Consideration:

  • Completion of at least 30 credits at the University of Pittsburgh applicable to the BSBA degree+

  • Cumulative Pitt GPA of 3.00 or higher

  • Average of 3.00 or higher in the following four business prerequisite courses or their regional campus equivalents:

    • MATH 0120 Business Calculus or MATH 0220 Analytical Geometry and Calculus 1 (4 credits)*

    • STAT 1100 Statistics and Probability for Business Management (4 credits)*

+If you have a strong academic history and would have been admissible to Pitt Business as a freshman, you may not need to complete 30 credits or all of the prerequisites before applying.  We recommend discussing a timeframe for application with your academic advisor. 

*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.
