The University of Pittsburgh has formal articulation agreements with various higher education institutions throughout the state of Pennsylvania to facilitate the transfer of students from one institution to the other as they pursue their educational goals. In addition to those formal articulation agreements, The Pitt Connection Transfer Guide System was developed by the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid to provide prospective transfer students with the most comprehensive, current, and thorough pre-transfer advising possible. The Pitt Connection allows our future students to explore many options at their community college with the assurance that what they are taking will fit nicely into their degree program at the University of Pittsburgh and allow them to pursue their academic goals with direction. The various undergraduate units at the University regularly review the course offerings at each of the five local community colleges (Butler County Community College, Community College of Allegheny County, Community College of Beaver County, Harrisburg Area Community College, and Westmoreland County Community College) and evaluate the transferability of these courses. The results are then published in five Pitt Connection Transfer Guides, one for each of the above-mentioned community colleges. Students at the community college who consult the Guides can register for their classes with confidence that, if they complete their coursework with grades of "C" or better, then that course will help them progress toward their undergraduate degree from the University of Pittsburgh. The Pitt Connection Transfer Guides are also available at the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid.
