For 35 years, College in High School (CHS) has been offering regional high school students the opportunity to earn both high school and University of Pittsburgh credit in courses taught right in their classrooms, at a tuition rate that is 10% of the normal cost.
CHS’s success has stemmed from close collaboration between faculty members of the University’s Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences and regional high school teachers. CHS-certified high school teachers work closely with Pitt’s world-class faculty to teach a high school course that is also a University of Pittsburgh course. Students use college-level textbooks, take college-level exams, and upon successful completion of the class, earn college credit that is recorded on an official University of Pittsburgh transcript.
Courses cost approximately $300, and tuition assistance is available for students in need. Because College in High School courses vary by high school, please consult your guidance office for specific CHS classes available at your high school. If you are interested in bringing CHS to your school, contact CHS at 412-624-6828.
