The associate degree is an excellent option for the beginning college student. Pitt-Titusville’s associate degrees are career oriented and help students either to prepare for a new career or a new job in business and industry or to enhance the skills needed for advancement in the job they currently hold. Most of the associate degree programs are flexible, allowing students to attend classes full-time or part-time, and are ideal for the older student returning to college.
The associate degree is also a good place to start on a four-year program. Many credits earned at Pitt-Titusville can be transferred into programs at one of the other University of Pittsburgh Campuses. However, not all credits will transfer and entrance requirements into other programs and schools are determined by the recipient school. Students are encouraged to consult with their advisor early in their studies in order to select the most appropriate courses to match their future goals.
Many students who attend the University of Pittsburgh at Titusville will either relocate to one of the four-year campuses in the system (Pittsburgh, Bradford, Johnstown, or Greensburg) or transfer to another university. Each student must become familiar with the requirements of the relocation or transfer campus, the requirements of the college, and the requirements of the major.
