Office of the Provost

Advanced Degrees

No person holding the rank of professor or associate professor at the University of Pittsburgh will be admitted to an advanced degree program in any part of the University. Under special circumstances, the Provost may make exceptions to this policy provided that (1) the person already holds the advanced degree appropriate to his or her academic rank, and (2) seeks a second advanced degree in a school other than that in which he or she holds an appointment. This regulation is not meant to prevent members of the University faculty from taking courses for credit, here or elsewhere.
