Pitt-Greensburg waives application fee through December 31

The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg is waiving its $45 application fee for prospective freshmen and transfers through the end of December. To qualify for the fee waiver, applications must be postmarked or submitted on-line by December 31.

“During this holiday season, Pitt-Greensburg invites interested high school juniors, seniors, and transfer students to apply during the month of December and to take advantage our current fee waiver,” said Heather Kabala, director of Admissions. “It’s our gift to the students who would like to continue their education here. While students are completing their applications, they may also register for our open house scheduled for January 21, 2012.”

Kabala explained the reasons for offering the fee waiver during this time of year, saying, "First, we want to ensure that all students who are academically qualified to receive an academic merit scholarship have their application completed and are admitted to the University before the January 15 scholarship deadline. Secondly, we recognized the financial burdens families face during this time of year and feel that this is one small way for us to ease that strain for students who may otherwise have to wait to apply to Pitt-Greensburg. Finally, we have been receiving more requests for application fee waivers in general."

Students may also take advantage of an Application Workshop to be held December 14 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Students who supply official transcripts, SAT/ACT scores, and optional essays will have their applications reviewed the same day during this accelerated application process. Registration is required and may be completed by calling 724-836-9880.

Pitt-Greensburg’s liberal arts curriculum offers 24 majors and 19 minors. Visit www.greensburg.pitt.edu/discovery for additional information on Pitt-Greensburg’s four-year degree programs and how to apply.
