Prospective Students

Even though we have suspended all face-to-face campus visits and online programming, our admissions and financial aid offices are fully functioning remotely.

During this time, we will continue to serve you and your family through other means, including phone, email, live chat and social media. Though the best way to experience our campus is in person, you can take our virtual tour, which will give you a feel for what Pitt-Bradford is like.
