University of Pittsburgh Office of Admissions and Financial Aid 4227 Fifth Avenue, Alumni Hall Pittsburgh, PA 15260 412-624-PITT [email protected] The University of Pittsburgh encourages students to challenge themselves while in high school through such opportunities as Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) courses. We reward student motivation in the case of AP and IB courses by granting University credit for high achievement on these ex- ams. Students, however, must check with their professional school to verify credit acceptance. AP and IB credits can benefit students in several ways. First, these credits can help students avoid repetition of previously mastered course work. Students also can advance their academic status, possibly leading to early graduation and/or early admission to graduate or professional school. Finally, students accepting credit offered for high exam scores will be well prepared to explore some of the unique academic opportunities available at the University, including honors courses, double or triple majors, interdisciplinary majors, double degrees (graduating with both a BS and a BA), and/or honors degrees. Students may choose whether or not to accept credit offered by the University for AP and IB scores. For ex- ample, a student majoring in chemistry may want a stronger foundation in that field and may, therefore, decide to decline credit received for the chemistry exam and to enroll instead in honors chemistry.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
